drawing studio: week 9

by gl. at 11:12 pm

today we met the notorious jeff, one of phil's coteachers. he was late so i got a chance to ask the person who's been hanging around taking notes why she's been taking notes. apparently she wants to publicize phil's methods and use them while working with troubled teens; she's especially interested in the young girl (12? 13?) who comes to class with her father.

this was our second (and i believe last) session working with a model, who i was pleased to see was male this time 'round. jeff had us go through 6 or 7 gesture exercises on the same page; then he told us to imagine a shapeful object like a tennis ball or a quart of milk and apply those shapes to the model; then he gave a us a couple of 20-minutes poses with the model. i experimented with the "just make marks you like" technique to some success, but just when i was really getting into it we switched poses. i completely lost track of the last piece, smudging most of it out and beginning again with the face during the last 5 minutes.

weird. i thought i had at least one other post about the drawing studio on this blog, but i guess they must all be on the blogspot blog. anyway, still no art. by the time i get any drawing studio pictures up, the class will be over!
