HMoA Drawing Class 08-13-12 - Blithe

Last Monday, I went to the drawing class over at Honolulu Art Academy. Here are the drawings from that session.

The one on the top is my favorite of the 5. It is four 2 minute gesture drawings and a 20minute pose on top of it. I think I could have made the drawing a little bigger and still fit the page. It still was a great feel to it.

I really like this set of 4 gesture drawings. The second from the left is my favorite of these. I guess the biggest testament to how much I like it is that I didn't do another drawing on top of it.

I do enjoy this set of drawings. This is 2 two minute, with the 2 five minute 

This is a 20 minute pose. It actually has a great likeness of the model.

This was the last of the poses for the night. It was a rough pose.

This life drawing class is on Monday at 7PM. It is located at the The Honolulu Museum of Art School, formerly the Academy Art Center at Linekona. There is a 10 dollar class fee.

  1. As an artist myself, I enjoy reading Philip Koch's sensitive writing about Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, who along with Whistler and Rothko, are my favorite American painters.
    I don't live in the United States but have traveled and passed a short time there. But even with the little time spent in your beautiful country, especially in small-town America, I can relate to some of the poetical feel that Hopper and Wyeth had captured in their art, which is for me part of the attraction of their paintings.
    Browsing at the other day, as I do now and then, I find a good selection of Edward Hopper's work, ,in the big archive of Western Art, that customers can order online for canvas prints and even hand-painted, oil-painting reproductions can be made and sent to them.
    Hopper's surrealistic and depersonalized world is there again. Timeless, yes, as it is still there now in the roadside cafes and diners that I ate at all over America.
