Figure studies / Risky Bidness

 I got the chance to get into
some figure drawing sessions here:

I'm pretty stoked to get back into
live modeling sessions. The process
is great and i get to exercise gestural
drawing. I always get some interesting
results from.

I haven't drawn from a live model since
my university academic career. which is
part of my Fine Art section of my portfolio:

started off with some quick
5 minute poses:

The model was very dynamic.
it's great to work with a model who moves around
and uses the space creatively. 

Feet have always been tough to draw without reference
but really fun when i do have reference: 

One of my favorite gestures: 

The model was wearing striped sock.
She later put on some Tibetan style finger
claws. Pretty cool prop. 

Venetian red:

black black (black ink and black acrylic paint mix) with an 
ink wash and white white (ink and acrylic mix.)

Getting back to some inking.

Tracing n sketching.

Geometric lines help me produce some
interesting effects with symmetry, assymetry
and whatnot. I can meander off course using
geometry and center lines as a guide. Structuring
faces and organic shapes is a little more difficult
yet still retain a great sense of depth and form.

Another food post blog.

are some photos of the amazing meals that I have had the
pleasure of enjoying in my home.

This is also my chance to practice with food photography. This
is a collaboration with Adrienne Filley on many dishes that I
gobbled up.

I am also a member of the 'foodie' community and previously
worked in this charming restaurant. Here's the post:
