Six Word Saturday

Well, guess what...I had fun!


I have never taken a life drawing class before, but the instructor was very welcoming (and adorable looking) and helpful and great. So, all in all, I had a fun evening. I am showing you two of the more Human looking paintings (every week it is different, one week paint and one week pencils etc). The others looked like flat bodied martians, perched in strange odd poses.


I was also glad to see that the Iraqie girl from my first painting class was there, happily painting away. I'm not sure if the jock strap that this guy wore was in deference to her, or not, but it was sure odd.

Great way to end a busy week.

i wish wish wish i were in this class too.

the shadows in # 1 are really good.

i took a figure drawing two hour class for the first time last summer and i was shocked by the nudity of the model and a sorry excuse for drawing genitals. actually it kind of made me giggle.

I really like these paintings. You got a true sense of the mass of the human form. And this is just a beginning!!!

Barbara/myth maker said...

Wow, you did great paintings! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Lynn said...

I wondered about the jock strap too? Why??? Your work looks good to me. It will be interesting to watch you progress. Do women cover their gentials too? Just curious.

Mim, OMG what a great start!! I would never have guessed these were your first attempts at life drawing. Like Suki said, you have the mass down already!

I've never seen male or female covered up in a life drawing class except when it was me when the model was sick ;P

My ex-husband posed for my first life drawing class. He was WAY too into it if you get my drift!! :D

My drawing came out really good though because I could study the model at home!

hahahahahahahaha!

Oh, so glad the Iranian girl stood her place. yay!

I'm glad the Iranian girl came back.

LO_YOU modelled naked? Do tell us more please.

Mim-you are amazing-from fish to people!

Baino said...

Not bad for a first attempt then I'm not surprised, you draw well to begin with. shame about the jockstrap, I think a life class is as close as I'll get to a naked man for some time!

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

wow.. these are great. Glad that gal came back too. Sounds like you are on a roll here liking your new class. :)

These are great sketches! I think you have much talent. I'm glad you are liking this course and it shows. It's good that the Iraqie girl did not give up; probably because of your compassion and encouragement.

I took an art class in college where we painted live models and it was really difficult. I'm very impressed with your drawings.
