Morning With “R”
Yesterday morning he posed for a drop in life drawing session I attend each week. Only a few others showed up to draw him. It was a beautiful fall day. Maybe this was the reason the other regulars stayed away? We have all drawn him many times. We all have drawings and paintings of him taking up space in our homes and studios. I wonder if this is the reason others didn’t come? I think he was a little disappointed so few had showed up. I think this shows in his poses and even in my drawings here of him.
I have drawings I’ve done of him that have been accepted into numerous shows. There are many others who have won prizes with the images they have drawn and or painted from his poses in the past.
I’d have been at the session no matter who the model is. I’m a little obsessed with drawing from life whenever possible.. And besides, who knows when the magic, or the stars, may be in place, and another winning drawing of “R” might materialize?
Both: 18”x 24” graphite on mixed media paper
