Coffee and Art at the Four Seasons

I'm trying to come up with some new images for the Cream of the Crop Coffee and Art Show at the Four Seasons Hotel this Saturday (10AM -2PM). I'm having fun. This will be the third year that Arthur and I have done this show.

Sketching at the beach

For I think the past two years I've been keeping a sketch journal of my trips to the beach. I keep the sketch book in my backpack with a few pencils so it's always there, whenever I want to draw. It's good practice for me and a fun way to pass the time, since I don't really like to lie around myself. But luckily, I have lots of subjects who do. It's a great way for me to combine my two loves, drawing and swimming.

Arthur's Life Drawing Class

Arthur had his first life drawing session at his studio. Today's topic, negative space and Arthur had a very novel way of demonstrating it with a large cardboard cutout. It made it easier to see the negative space.
I was his assistant. That means clean up before the class and after and make sure everyone has enough paper. Please read about his class at his blog. He asked me to upload some photos to his blog but for some unknown reason it's blocked at the moment so I'm including the photos here. Next week's class covers gesture. Drop in fee is $25, of which a portion goes to the model.
