On a recent trip to VA I was lucky enough to visit Norfolk Drawing Group. They are an amazing bunch of artists. They have been going strong for years and know how to show a girl a good time!
Here are a couple of the pieces I did that night.
|20 minute, oil on vellum, 12x9|
|40 minute, oil on Ampersand Gessobord, 14x11|
I worked on the background of this one after I got it back to B'ham. I simplified and made it darker.
|The model was late so one of the drawers jumped in to do gesture poses, (Thanks Carol!)|
|The 40 minute pose, oil on canvas by my friend Mark Miltz.|
Walt Taylor, the renown artist of Crack Skull Bob sketch blog captured me in the act. He says he was inspired by my boots :)
I have his book, Under the Rancid Toreador. It is comprised of selections from his blog and is hysterically funny. I read it from cover to cover chuckling to myself. I highly recommend it and his blog.
