More Heads

My quest to draw the head continues. Here are some heads I did at Studio II.

Quick Sketch - 3 sessions

Here is a sample of quick sketch I have done over the last week. It represents work done in 2 of Chris Hero's unistructed workshops and one of Israel Martinez's tuesday night drawing classes.

This is Israel Martinez's Demo he did one my pad. He has a real gentle beautiful drawing style.
This is my drawing.

These are some of my drawings at Chris Hero's Uninstructed workshop at Studio II at the Helms Bakery. My drawings have been affected by my rotator cuff problems I have been having lately. The drawings are very stiff and I feel in pain much of the time when I am drawing.

These are in Israel's Class.

Israel Martinez's Tuesday Night Class at Graphiads

I am not sure when/if I can get back to Tim Gula's class up in Westlake. I have tendonitis in my knee and it's killing me. I signed up last night for Israel Martinez's 5 week figure drawing class in Westchester it's much closer to me. I can get there in 15 minutes.

These are Israel's 2 minute drawings that he did on my pad.

I went to the Gallery Girls "Mermaid" themed workshop yesterday hosted at the Palos Verdes art center. I did three 9" x 12" oil paintings. I will put them on this site when they dry. It was a great day. The Palos Verdes art center is a beautiful space. I never had been there before.
