Lost in the Wisteria, and some leftover sketches
Last year we bought a slightly kitschy, copy of an 18-th century statue to put in our new garden. It stuck out something like the proverbial sore thumb, and we wondered if we’d done the right thing for a while. Finally, the wisteria has surrounded it, and it’s starting to look like it belongs here.
Some leftovers from my life drawing group, which has recessed for the summer:
One evening, the model didn’t show up. It was a beautiful evening, so we sat outside, drank wine and did portraits of one another. I was pretty intimidated, as there are some pretty amazing artists in the group, but I managed to do 3 – Marie, Monique and Phillippe, in that order.
And here’s a drawing of a dressed model, for a change. We were drawing outside on Saturday morning, and the wind picked up, so she put on her robe.
A final note – if, like me, you sometimes have trouble keeping up with all of your favorite blogs, try bloglovin – really the best reader I’ve found – way ahead of google reader in my opinion.
