Oil figure study

Here is the final version!

This is my study after about 2 hours. I look forward to spending some more time with it. The pose was beautiful and I hope I can do it justice. Look for the finished picture next week.

Children's book

So unfortunately, I've been under the weather for the past few days and it's easier to draw than paint in bed, so I got started on some illustration work for a children's book written by a sorority sister of mine. It's about what happens to socks when they get lost in the dryer, so my subjects are a daddy knee high sock and a purple polka dot baby bootie. Quite a change of pace from my normal work, but it is fun!

Last night I did some studies of our new model, Josh, who will return next week. I'll use these to help start a larger more finished drawing of him the following session. I also plan to review my Goldfinger anatomy book because the musculature is so visible on Josh, I want to be able to identify it accurately.
