Charcoal sketch of my daughter over mixed media background
Today was FUN DOINS at the Lakewood Arts Council as we had a figure drawing workshop with a wonderful artsit and teacher Teddy Schmedeke Lee who teaches at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design.
I don't do many figures, but it is ALWAYS a good idea to stretch and practice and LEARN. Today my favorite NEW thing was how to fit work into an "envelope". This is valuable when trying to fit a figure within a certain size. Below is a video as she described this to me.
I promised the other members of class that I would post a lot of the videos I took on other sections of class, so be looking for this in coming days!
I also did a charcoal sketch of my son on his skateboard that I will work on...I used the "envelope" method to place him.
My goal in these workshops is to learn at least one new thing...play, and practice rather than produce a finished piece...and that is just what I did!!
