LCC Sun Drawing 3/30/14 - Sergio - Long Poses

Sergio 03/30/14 - Pose 01,  Watercolor and Ink on Paper, 9"x12"
I had a really good Morning at LCC on the 30th. Sergio was the model and I am very happy with this set of drawings.

I have been doing Tombow drawings at the Sunday session and oil pastels during the Monday sessions.

It was hard to pick a favorite of the morning, but this first one I really like. Sergio took this pose, to which everyone's reaction was, "Are you sure you can hold this for 20 minutes?" He said, "I'm all locked in here, I'm thinking of writing a book on this."

The pose is beautiful and I like the drawing that resulted.

I will have to spend a little more time on this drawing, but there is a lot of potential here. When I complete it expect another update on the blog.

This was the second pose of the night. He took a reclining pose because the last pose was rather difficult. This drawing is basically completed in my mind. There is a great spontaneity and I like the contrast between the defined legs and the less defined torso. I also like how the legs look.

This was the third pose of the morning.

As I was drawing this I started to realize how difficult the chair was to render. There is an elegant natural curve to the armrests and the bottom of the chair is falling through in places.  After i was done with it I asked Mike, "Do your students hate this chair?"

Before he could reply, one of his students in the session chimed in, "The chair is the devil."

I guess that answered that question.

I spent the break drawing the chair in more detail. I am very happy with how this came out.

What... a 4th pose?

Normally these session only have three long poses, but there was enough time to squeeze in a 4th. It is another drawing that needs a few hours of work afterwards. We will see what I can come up with.

The LCC Sunday Drawing Session is at LCC's Drawing studio. It runs from 10:30 AM until 1:30 PM. There is a 10 dollar class fee.
