Getting my money’s worth

Here are some more of my “masterpieces” from my Figure Drawing class.

My patience was wearing a little thin this week with beginning every work with contour drawing (ie, outlining the figure). Plus, the teacher kept trying to coerce me to make up fantastical landscapes in the back of the figure instead of leaving the background empty. I actually listened to her (despite totally wanting to throw a tantrum: “I AM HERE TO LEARN TO DRAW THE FIGURE NOT FAKE BACKGROUNDS!!!”). And I’ll admit the results are startling. These pieces look like almost finished pieces despite only about 20-30 minutes of work on each.

The beach background for the third piece came from my AM/PM Yoga DVD, ever the source of inspiration.
