Figure Group and Miniature Art

Well I promised to post some figure drawings from our Figure Group sessions. We meet on Thursday nights at Space 301 studio space. We usually have 8 or 10 sessions in the spring and again in the fall. This is a great opportunity for drawing or painting the figure, and experiencing comraderie with fellow artists. Here are some recent drawings from the last 3 sessions - most of these are around 20 minute poses. I finished off the last 2 drawings when I got home.

Also, on Saturday this weekend was the opening reception for the Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show sponsored by Dr. Java Coffeehouse. I entered a small pen & ink of two pears, and was very pleased that it got juried into the show. The show will hang at Dr. Java's until 2 December. It is a great "little" show - lots of amazingly done miniature art. Check it out - this is a great excuse to enjoy artwork over a hot cup of latte. My drawing is around 4" x 4", so it is not really miniature, but it met the requirements for this show (all work 8" x 10" or smaller). Will post photo of the drawing when I bring it back home.

Joanne, Your talent is growing exponentially! I have always heard that figure drawing is the most difficult because there are so many nuances to capture. I am quite in awe. When will I be able to buy my own Joanne original?
