Figure Drawing From “Figure It Out” TV Show

There is a monthly Public Access TV Show in Portland, Maine called “Figure It Out.” I have been invited to take part in a few episodes where a host interviews each artist as they draw live models.

Weekly Portrait Sketches Jun 04-10 2018

As a practicing artist, I do a lot of sketching, especially portrait sketches. It was my intention with this blog to post sketches as I go, but that got a little overwhelming and I fell behind. So instead I am going to post my my favorite sketches on a weekly basis and see how that goes.

I try to sketch every day, but sometimes life just gets too busy. Fortunately I’m part of a three weekly drawing groups so that keeps me sketching at least three times a week. This week’s sketches come from those groups.

Figure Model With Artists

One of the groups drawing groups I belong to is  a figure drawing group that meets Fridays at the University of Southern Maine. We sit in the round so sometimes the model’s back is to me.

The model is too far away to really see the details in the back muscles so I like to include the artists drawing her from the other side of the room.

This drawing was done about a year ago.
