Life Drawing: Bob the Lawyer. Thursday Night, April 4, 2014

Thursday night, April 4, 2014 at Medi’s FMA Studio in Costa Mesa, California. This was my first time working with Bob the Lawyer.

I came very late to the studio. Here are my first 5 minute sketches.

This was a good pose, but hard for the model. It was more challenging to sketch but worthwhile. I was unable to get all I wanted to, into my sketch by the end of 10 minutes. This was my favorite pose. I reminded me of Giorgio de Chirico’s enigmatic sketch of a servile supplicant worshiping a dish of loomingly large powerless boiled fish.

Denise and Asli wanted to focus on hands, so they moved to the other side of the room. Here, I worked on this pose.
