Figure Drawing: Day 2

20140128-221658.jpg
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.

Figure Drawing: Day 1

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~

Fabric Gets at Joann’s

Fabric buys today at Joann’s

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?
