HMoA Drawing Class 01/22/2013 - Blithe

So yesterday was Class at the Honolulu Art Academy. The model was Blithe, She just returned from Portland.

She modeled a few times before. I didn't catch her name until now.

I had a good night. Above is my favorite of the night. It is an interesting pose because of the staff. One of the other people there Doug Tolentino, drew her with her hair down. He said was going for a "Pele walking on the lava flows" look.

I did capture the pose well and I like the feeling of the piece nicely. I do like the gestures behind this one. I really like how I'm placing the drawings on the page.

This was the second of the twenty minute poses. I think It needs a little help. The contracts between the lights and the darks isn't there yet.

Last pose of the night, I did a portrait. I think it came out very nicely. It was all in all a good night.

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 class fee.
