Spending a few hours with other artists drawing the human figure -- priceless!!
I'd like to thank Nancy Thurston and the other folks at the 509Artspace for hosting the figure drawing session today. It was a delightful session, with an opportunity to draw William in many gestural poses and a few longer ones. He is a dynamic model. They are hosting many other exciting art related gatherings, so check out their website/blog for more information... http://509artspace.blogspot.com
And also for the artist's looking for a studio to call their own, several small to midsized spaces are available for rent at a modest fee. Do seek them out if you need a place to spread out (and out of your home kitchen).
Here is the head from one of today's sketches...
