  • Treat Your Model Like a Well-Trained Pet

    I am kidding! So kidding! But I was thinking about this article and how I wanted to discuss working with a model, specifically how to position your model in a figure drawing , and what that position can convey both compositionally and as part of the narrative you are trying to present. In my mind, I...

  • 3 Paintings I'd Take in a Heartbeat

    Unknown Woman by Thomas Wilmer Dewing, 1890, pastel painting on paper. I love the effects and colors you can get with pastel paintings . . . at least I do now. It wasn't too long ago that I felt like I had some kind of weird complex where I could appreciate the work but I couldn't really see...

  • Bodies Come Crashing to the Ground

    Drawing human anatomy can be an adventure if you take it to the limits. Artist and draftsman Leah Yerpe certainly does. Her large- and small-scale drawings feature figures freefalling, tumbling, and twisting as they swoop across the page. Pleiades by Leah Yerpe, 72 x 107, charcoal drawing, 2011. Though...

  • Do You Know All Your Lines?

    Two Women with Still Life by Willem de Kooning, pastel and charcoal on paper, 22 1/4 x 18 3/4 in., 1952. The artifice of line is one of the aspects of drawing that I am most in love with. The fact that we can take line—which doesn't exist in the natural world—and create works of art that...

  • Drawing Basics: Costumes, Clothes or Nothing At All

    Julie Seated with Hands Clasped by Steven Assael, 2007, drawing, 22 x 15.5. We all know that drawing the nude figure is a, if not the , classical way of depicting the human body. You gain so much from those kind of explorations--a sense of gesture, a foundation for drawing anatomy , and a close study...

  • Re: Drawing Open Studio / Life Drawing - (tips on getting a group started)

    Great informative article. I find that the core group is what keeps us all going. I have seen as few a 3 regular attendees to as many as 7 or 8 you could pretty much count on. I like a group of 8 to 10 and find the big groups of 25 plus to crazy for me. All the artist that attend your groups are lucky...

  • Re: figure drawing workshops and open studios

    I found the directory very useful in finding resources for figure drawing classes. Is there a directory or registry that can be used by figure models to find modeling work? I am a figure model always seeking modeling opportunities but finding the available positions can be difficult.
