Frick Collection Studies

We stopped by the Frick Collection today for a short sketch session.  It's a fantastic museum and I'd like to go back soon for further study.

I really liked this woman's expression.

I also tried a few quick compositional thumbnails as an exercise to break down the elements of story and light and shadow.  This is something I definitely want to do more of.

ASIFA Pose Drawing Session FALL/WINTER 2011 #1

After several months hiatus I finally made it back to the gesture drawing class.  It's fun to see how easy it is to get rusty at this kind of study even when you spend every day of the week drawing. 

These are 1-2 minutes:

Rembrandt Studies

Over Thanksgiving vacation we checked out a traveling Rembrandt exhibit.  We managed to get a few quick studies in before we were told that sketching the paintings wasn't permitted.  It was great to see some of these works in person though.
