Art date......

 

A perfect example of an art date referred to in Julia Cameron's book The Artist Way, was yesterday, when my art friends and I visited Art Elements Gallery in Newberg, Oregon.

I was so busy viewing and appreciating the art that I did not take many photos but it was an inspirational and fun trip!  I really like this gallery that represent, primarily, local artists.

Then, today, I started my live model drawing class.......too much fun!

"Fast, sketchy and loose" describes the drawing technique, not the girl! 

Trying to draw what you see is a challenge with a live model but a wonderful learning experience.  We have one more class next week, I can hardly wait.

Thanks for sharing the photos of the gallery - lovely! Your sketches of live model - fabulous. I took a class a long time ago; it's not easy. You seem to have a natural eye and talent for it. xxoo

I'm still laughing about the fast and loose part of your post. You have a real talent. I can't draw, but I can appreciate anyone who can. And you can, whether it's detailed and slow, or loose and quick!
