Yesterday’s Figure Drawing

I made it to the Monday open studio at the Atlanta Artists’ Center yesterday. It was a great atmosphere with an excellent model and friendly, supportive artists. It’d been so long since I’d sketched from a live model, I was a bit intimidated at first, but I got into a reasonable rhythm. I came away with a decent drawing, but getting her head right threw me for a loop, so I just erased it. I know it doesn’t look right. Gotta keep going!

I worked a good bit on the monster portrait last week and I will be working more this week. Maybe I’ll get far enough to post a photo.

    Teddy Rooseveldt:

    It’s not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by he dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiently, who errs and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcomings, who knows the great enthusiams, the great devotions, and spends in a worthy cause, who at the best knows at the end the triumph of high achievevment, and at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, knowing his place could never be with those timid and cold souls who know neither victory or defeat.
