Life Drawing

Today's model I've already drawn her twice from the right, so I moved to her left and I borrowed a fellow artist's "watercolor crayon" which I've never used before. It's a crayon stick that you dip the tip into water every few strokes and it lends messy and interesting results. It's good for quick gestures cause it's so un-precise. I took some pictures of her longer poses hoping that some day I'll do a painting of that.

Life Drawing

Today's model was that curvy one again, she really have very interesting lines, I just wish the studio lighting wasn't so bland, otherwise the tonal change on her could be fascinating.

Life Drawing

Today's model was a beautiful young girl full of Asian tattoos and pink short hair, she looked like one of those Japanese anime girl character. I find it amusing that people like me whose English is the second language and we try very hard to improve our vocabularies, loose our accents, and blend in with the western society as best as we can, and once in a while we see this white girl trying very hard to be Asian.

Lavande and Life Drawing

I never uses perfume but ever since I read the novel Perfume and saw the movie, I'm enticed with the power of scent and how it evokes memories and emotions. During my trip to France I especially made a to trip to Grasse and their perfume factory, and saw with delight that the process of making perfume was exactly how the movie portrayed it a century ago.  I bought this lavender eau de toilette and it was a beautiful bottle, sometimes owning small elegant things can elevate one's mood instantly. 

Today's model is another round and voluptuous lady, though a little too smooth for my taste. I prefer lumpy.
