First of eight is complete. This was hard work! I had to pick a figure drawing done by one of the masters. I choose Michelangelo. Then after obtaining a good photocopy I was to trace the drawing's tonal values. Next I had to copy the drawing using the materials the artist used and take observational notes about what I was obseving and learning by doing this. Lastly I was to do my own drawing using what I learned from the master and in the media used by the master artist. M poor Rudy agreed to posing nude for me but I told him I wanted to do some sketching first. So, he could keep his underpants on while i sketched. But I liked this seated pose so well (at least in conte) that I decided to use it for my study. Whee...he narrowly escaped this time!
Now, off to get ready for the theater! Rudy and I are going into Los Angeles to see Sweeny Todd at the Ahmenson.
