Know Your Destination

Here's a sketchbook page that evolved through listening to the radio. Certain words jumped out at me and became part of the picture!
I like the way that words added to a drawing automatically create a relationship between the two and give the overall picture another layer of meaning.


Life drawing this morning and we were lucky enough to have a pregnant model to pose for us. She was a fantastic model, kept really still and those curves! A joy to draw.



That fore-shortened leg was a challenge, but I like challenges!

I love your 'Know Your destination' piece, this is what I need to work on for myself! What is my destination?
Your life sketches are wonderful, and I love the full rounded tummy holding the future.

Lovely drawings! It really is awesome to have a pregnant model - it is so rare! In many years of figure drawings classes, I only got that opportunity once!

Hello miss jessie...so sorry to have been gone for so long, and I see I have missed some really great pieces. Love your art and this latest piece is really great. Life drawing must be so fun! I have never tried that with a model except with my kids faces and they never stay still for more than a couple minutes. These are great!
