HMoA Figure Drawing 08/19/13 - Blithe - Short Poses and Gestures

Blithe 8/19/13 - Pose 2, Ink on Paper, 9"x12".

Its another Monday drawing over at the Honolulu Museum of Art. The model today was Blithe, the ballet dancer. She is one of the favorites of the class.

I have been using watercolor for the long poses and Tombow pens for the shorter poses. I have been really liking the results.

Above is one of my favorites of the night. The way she was standing in the light the shadows were very dark and uniformed on one side of her body. I tried to capture this with the black ink and wash. I really like how this picture looks. It has a crisp clean watercolor look.

Above is the 10 minute pose.  I managed to get a lot of detail into the picture.  I do like how I rendered her pointed toes.

Below are the gesture drawings from the night.
