The weather outside is frightful,
A couple of our lovely model from class last night, and yeah, I made up the penguin, so he doesn't look right.
I'm selling a few drawings in an upcoming art show. It's called the $100.00 show because, everything is $100 bucks. There are some very well known artists in the show selling oil paintings and such, so my little drawings may not be as great of a value, but if you are in the area stop in and say hi.

I've seen really terrible drawings that when criticized the artist (usually a student) will say something like "but I spent 10 hours on it!), or on the other side will say they didn't have enough time, or are somehow saying "look what I did in only X hours!
None of those reasons are the reason I post the times of my drawings. I post the times so that you can know that these are gesture drawings. These were drawings done in my class. The model will hold a pose for 2 minutes or 5 minutes or whatever, when the timer goes off, the model moves. Gesture drawing is not a warm up, its an end to a means. Doing short poses forces you to think and act in certain ways while drawing. It gets you thinking about story, line of action and silhouette. These are 2 and 5 minute drawings.
