Return of the Son of Figure Drawing

It’s been a while since my last figure drawing throwdown so I dropped in with the local group in Bar harbor last week. It had been a while and though I’ve been drawing quite frequently, there’s nothing quite like working from the model.

I’m looking forward to working up a 2 x 3 foot, cloudy, winter day painting of this site.

I went out into Acadia National Park this morning to draw near Otter Cliffs. I saw not another soul all morning. The light, what there was of it, was beautiful, the quiet, quite splendid. Eventually the wind came up and the work had to end.
