Drawing Club: Revolutionary Soldier

Sketches from 10Feb11

Thanks to Mike's comment on a previous post I decided to bring the watercolors back out this session. I ended up having to premix colors in order to speed up the process. So I had gold, dark blue, brown, and skin tone at the ready to quickly lay in color. The top page is almost all watercolor except for the bottom left which is digital, the second page was also colored digitally. Tonight's model was the, always historically accurate, Leslie Marc Halperin.

yay! these make me want to do costume studies.
when is the drawing club?

Kendra Melton said...

Thursday nights 7-10 in Glendale ($20)
http://www.thedrawingclub.com/
traffic can be a nightmare but it's totally worth the trek. Great stage, great models, snacks + refreshments, themed movie, themed music. And to top it off the man in charge, Bob Kato, teaches figure at Art Center and loves to help and give pointers to those who ask. It's a great environment. Maybe I'll see you one of these nights? :]
