Real Model from life!




My first drawing done from life in my new studio!! I'm pretty happy with it. Her mom says, "too much makeup" and I say, "girl at 15"!!!

Thanks for looking!

Wow!

This is spectacular, Patricia! She really jumps off the page! So alive.

I had to giggle about the makeup. I also have a 15 year old daughter. She and your model could be twins!

Hi Pat,

Congratulations on your first drawing from life! It's very successful!

She is gorgeous! I especially love her eyes, they are soulful.

This is amazing! Very well done. Tell us about your new studio. Is it in your home or are you renting space?

Thanks Molly, Isabel and Virginia,
I scarf up the posititive feedback as I get blind to my own work and never know if it is good or not. I really struggled over the eye makeup thing, but in the end decided it was part of who she is at this age and really told a truer story of her fifteen year old self.

My studio is in my new townhouse. It is glorious. I just love being there. It is the third "bedroom" but since it was new construction I had vinyl flooring installed instead of carpeting and in the closet a utility sink was installed, so I have a place to wash brushes, etc. There are two north facing windows which run from 2ft from floor to about six feet and one west facting window (which I have hung blackout shades for the afternoon sun). The room is about 12 x 16 but it is amazing how quickly I have filled it up!! Still hard to get a set up for photography but works well for life drawing. The ceilings are vaulted - I love how open it feels. My fiance says we will probably stay a couple years but he doesn't know I may never want to leave this space

Thanks, Terri! Any suggestions on how to matt and frame it? I want to experiment with matting, square? elongated?

Pat, I've got a question. Do you matt and frame your own drawings? I want to start doing mine, (custom framming is too expensive for me now), but don't know how. Can you give me some tips?


Sorry, I'm no matting expert... :P
