Warm Up Stories




Session with “MT”





Warm Up Stories

Two more drawings of warm up pose practice sketches crowded on a page, before these models settling in for the longer poses at recent life drawing sessions.
I keep seeing after the fact the drama in the stories not really being told.
Both: 24”x 18” graphite, oil sanguine and colored pencil

  1. It's harder to spot on the first but if you look at it deeply you see the slight movement, must be a calm guy but he knows what muscles might give him problems...but B. she has no qualms about stretching muscles that need to stretch, it makes me want to get up and dance, good ones, i Like the first one just a little more, only because the stretches are so subtle..you almost miss them...they must really be ease to move so freely, bravo Anthony

    1. Both models are in great shape. Both are fun to draw. It seems the more lines to show them and place them in a back ground, the more drama shows to imply a story..
      Thank you

  2. You know you haven't done a sketch of 'Your Islands 'Of' Solitudes, forever now, not in the mood? I miss them so, you've done many beautiful 'OFF' solitudes, but none OF I miss them dearly, please

    1. I posted three from “Islands off Solitude in the previous week, on June 12th and 15th?
      It may be a week or two before more appear. I have a few more sessions with models this week and the next week I’ll be traveling for a few days. I’ll try to work a few in when I can☺

    2. no see you say OFF instead of
      OF which makes all the difference off means they are not on the island remember, you taught me that important distinction...

    3. It is “off”. My islands don’t have a name. The are just off the coast of a bay I call Solitude. Thus: Islands off Solitude (Bay).

  3. I checked a few many get zero comments, so maybe it's a temporary trend, seems 'writing' is the thing, as a photographer, hey I'm happy if I get 8 comments, when I use to be on the photographer site Aminus 3
    i use to get so many comments, to answer and so many photographers to visit that I would spend at least 5 hours on-line just to respond to my comments and visit until I LEFT i wanted the warmth of blogger many have left...still WRITING in a strange fashion or in beautiful poetry is the thing...don't worry most of those bloggers I knew so well who wrote haikus and haiga which was the fashion then barely get one comment, sometimes 2, it's all about what's trendy...so hey I say who cares just do what you love best, and i for one will be very very happy to visit

  4. The second sketch really looks like the dance, colors make it spin and go behind 3D. Cool!

    1. The colors do help set the depth.

  5. Wow...I love these.
    If these are the "warm up" poses, then I can't wait to see the finished editions...they are simply marvelous...so vibrant and full of life and movement! :)

    1. Thank you
      Lately sketches from the shorter poses have been more fun.
      Drawings from the longer poses that follow will, or have already been posted. The unsuccessful attempts end up in the wastebasket.

  6. Then what is the difference between
    Your Islands Of Solitudes and
    Your Islands Off Solitudes....you're the one who made the distinction between the two...On Islands of Solitudes you are but few, on Your Islands OFF Solitudes means that they are no longer alone ore a member of the island OF SOLITUDES, If there is one thing I got from you it's that distinction. Do the two have combined and there is no difference anymore, hey you made the distinction not I, and Yes I loved YOUR ISLANDS OF SOLITUDES

    1. You have been following me from the beginning of the island series, even before I knew they would turn into a series. I went back and looked, to attempt figuring out the confusion..
      The series began with the post titled Destinations Passed on April 15, 2013. This was the first post I included “Islands off Solitude”. All the posts since then have been “Off”. Before or after I can’t find a post where “Of” was used. Comments by you and others used “of” instead of “off” sometimes, but I couldn’t find a post of mine where I referred or posted other than “The islands off Solitude, or where my response implied there was and “of” solitude too.
      I’m sorry for the confusion. I will be definitely doing more in the series when I get the time.

  7. hey honestly of or off I love them but I swear on my honour that you differentiated between of and off, and It'll be a pleasure when I have time to view all of outstanding photos until I show the proof, it gives me an excuse as well to see all those I haven't seen, just promise me you never deleted any of your post? You drawings are so important to me, you know that
