The Ever-Illusive Short Week…

… why do they always seem so long? Anyway, despite being a bit quiet here I’ve been working on a finished design for one of the bro-in-law’s end tables. I spent most of Monday hashing out the sketch and inking it, and then added markers in gradually through the week. Now that I have one down I’m hoping the other will come together just as quickly. Then I can finally start painting the actual tables!

I’ve been keeping an eye out for life drawing classes around Fredericton and they’ve been very hard to find. Fortunately, I found out about a possible studio starting up at NBCCD mid-October. I’m anxious to see what their line-up of fall evening classes is and I’ll be sure to add life drawing to the list. Drawing a model from life is so much different than copying a photograph. It’s good to study from both, of course, but I find drawing from life much more challenging and rewarding. It allows you to see the subject from all angles with varied lighting, something that’s difficult to capture in a still photograph.

Stay tuned to hear about the last two days of my abstract art class, and maybe a blurb about the Golden Acrylics workshops I did a few weeks ago! Better late than never, right?
