Wednesday's Expressive Drawing Class


Today was a bit surreal!  White Mocha was kind enough to come to "bring a friend" class today.  This was the first time they tried this and happend to also be the last class of the semester.  It was a lot of fun to have her there drawing with me.  She did a wonderful job despite the fact that she thought she drew something akin to a bobble head figure.  I think hers turned out wonderful.

I had a pretty big mental block to get over with this one.  This model looked a wee bit too much like photos I've seen of a certain blogger on one of the blogs I read regularily.  Mind you, I've never seen this blogger naked, or in person for that matter, but the face carried a pretty close resemblance and the general shape of the body from what I can tell.  It seemed to me that they also seem to share a similar personality.  I kept telling poor White Mocha how much this looked like.....no I can't say.  Any guesses?

We had a party/art show after with hors d'oeuvres and wine and cheese.  It included the painters from the "Expressive Figure Painting" class as well as all of the students from the "Expressive Figure Drawing" class.  Pamela gave a speech and was brought close to tears.  Some of the models were there.  Boy do artists know how to throw a party!

Anyhow Xxxx is now hanging on my livingroom wall for the time being until I get uncomfortable enough to take him down.  Even though I know it's really Mr. D, I can't stop seeing him as Xxxx.

Generally paid $15 to $20/hr. Minimum 3 hours. Better than minimum wage here! Better than I'm paid too! Crap! I'm in the wrong business!
