Life Drawing -

Our model today was amazing - she is a serious dancer (such graceful shape and muscle definition!) and came with waist length dreads, arms tattoos, and various other piercings and decorative scaring. So interesting - in both appearance and gesture.

While the model was full of awesome, it was super short pose day and it was all I could do to begin to get her down on paper. Will have to see if we can get her again for longer poses.

The gesture drawings have a lot of attitude! I enjoy their freshness.

Great sketches! I'm impressed with the fluidness of motion and flow of the body!

Hi Tara,
Thanks for checking out my video. (My blog does not alert you to comments, so I thought I'd catch you here) I would love to see that cowboy cougar character of yours! It's fun to tap into source material from our own childhoods!

The reason I enjoy your life drawings so much, Tara...is I can see where they're going, what they will become.
