Back to the Drawing Board



This is a sketch on newsprint I did recently at the figure/life drawing group at the Boothbay Regional Art Foundation. I think it was a 15 min pose. Not sure. Ether way, I liked it enough to share and prove that I am trying to draw more (which was my failed goal last year).

Something that I have been pushing for finally happened.. My wife Raquele has started a blog including her original photography. Here is a link to Raquele's Blog . Her use of abstract shapes in the composition are lesson for most of us and worth checking out. Also I know that if you comment there, like me, she will respond to all. Worth checking it out!

Love the drawing Dan!

Been missing you since your wonderful marathon project of supporting the foundation. This is a lovely stripped down image and could be the basis of a variety of development treatments even though it stands on it own as a great image.

Nice one Dan! Good to hear you are still attending the figure sessions. Draw and paint and then paint some more. I think that's Carlson?

Thank you D J!

Thanks a lot Mick! I have enjoyed the small break will keep the blog pretty casual til at least February. Then I will unleash my blog of fury..! Ha!

Hey Kyle, thanks! Yeah I'm trying to go every week but the winter has a way of making money disappear..?. I don't know where it goes..

I like this one, Dan! I really enjoy seeing painter's sketches/drawings...something raw and honest. Post more. Glad I didn't bet you on Bears/Patriots season!!!

Thank you Matt! I have been digging the stuff you have been don't lately!
I wouldn't have taken the money anyways! Better luck next year, the Bears always bounce back.
