Life Drawing: a boxer in conte, gouache

I did something out of the ordinary this night… I brought paints. They’re a different animal outside of the studio.

10 mins wasn’t very much time for gouache. There’s a reason I usually save the paints for the studio. Believe it or not, he wasn’t actually hovering, there was a stool I ran out of time to draw.

I got some workable sketches to. Matt’s a boxer. I wish it was one long pose but we did 10s and 20s.

Matt was great. He did these crazy fitness poses; 2 minute plank pose, 2 min crunch pose… my abs hurt just looking at him. I still haven’t done anything with those sketches quite yet.

I’ve been busy being mad and inspired about the neighbors cutting down our wisteria.

Only a couple days before the full moon, it flooded outside. Plus it was cold in the art center. I felt bad for the model, I was chilly in a turtleneck sweater.
