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.

All quiet in the park

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.

Rocky Shoreline, Grand Manan

After returning from Grand Manan in September, this drawing sat forgotten in a corner of my studio. I stumbled across it yesterday and revisited a nice bit of rocky coastline
