Draw till you drop

Yesterday, I attended an all day drawing marathon at the Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan, Connecticut. They had the entire facility dedicated to the event with live figure models in every studio posing for various lengths of time. I felt like Goldilocks peeking into each studio– this pose is too short, and this pose is too long and this pose is just right. I actually got to draw from three different models during the day, met lots of other professional artists and had a great time. I made a note that I have to abandon my family more often on a Saturday and just devote the day to drawing!

Economy of line and bold green makes a striking portrait
This model had an absolutely captivating face
I was the only one who wanted to draw the back of the model.
Last post of the day before I decided I inhaled enough pastel dust.

By the way, if you like to collect figurative nude art, I have a shop on etsy that is focused solely on that genre. Go check it out! {if you are interested in any of these drawings, please contact me schulmanArt@yahoo.com since they are not listed online)
