Sorry there was no figure drawing post last week. The class got rescheduled due to snow. But this week I felt like I had really improved in terms of drawing people from observation because in some of the poses, my lines and values were pretty on point, especially in the 45 minute pose. The model was male, which was a real challenge for me, considering I generally don’t draw males… but it was fun and I felt very accomplished after.
My What Katie Did order came in today! Which, was super fast considering I had placed the order on Thursday during lunch. As soon as I placed my order, I received my invoice number, then a few hours later, my USPS tracking number. It was meant to be 2-day shipping, but it was hailing on Saturday, then it was a holiday on Monday, which probably caused the delay…
As you can see, the package arrived in a flat USPS envelope, which is in pretty good condition considering it came in all the way from sunny LA☀️
But, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right?
Today marks my first day at figure drawing!! I haven’t really had much experience drawing people that aren’t a photograph
(or myself), so this class was a must for me, especially in preparing my art portfolios. I think today was pretty successful, I saw a significant improvement from the warm ups to the longer period drawings, so I’m feeling quite accomplished today. There’s nine more classes, so I really hope to improve~
So after getting my sewing machine, I finally went on a trip to my local(-ish) fabric store today. It was a chain place, catering more to quilters than the sort of thing that I was looking for, alas >.< But despite that, I did manage to get some really good fabrics as well as some really great swatches for my F.I.T portfolio. I also picked up a pattern to make stuff out of this, but I won’t reveal it JUST yet *3* I’m really excited to work with this lovely brocade, but it’s SOOOOO hard to photograph, which might be an issue when it comes to taking photos of the finished product.
So what do you think of this fabric? What do you think I’ll make out of it?
First of all, Happy New Year to all of you! Thank you so much for following me, I really hope that y’all had a great 2013! Here’s to an even better 2014!
A couple of days after Christmas, I went out with my mom and ended up getting a ton of stuff. I was really excited about what I got, so I thought that I’d share it with all of you! One of the first stops we hit was Urban Outfitters, one of my favorite places to shop, especially during sale season 😉 I got over-the-knee socks, which I’m super excited about, because socks are literally one of my favorite things >3< as well as some shoes, which were super lucky finds on the sale rack. They fit surprisingly well, considering I have small, wide feet. I was uber psyched about the acetate heel boots in particular, since they really reminded me of a pair of these Chanel boots I was pretty obsessed with…
You can expect to see my boots in a few looks soon!
Apart from Urban Outfitters, I also got a super adorable top from J. Crew, which I’ll probably be wearing soon, and some bralettes from hot topic, which were buy one get one free. At $5, I couldn’t say no!
Did you guys hit the shops after Christmas? Do tell!
