Photo of Stevie (by Stevie)
In my family, I am the oldest (by quite a bit) of five. Today I'd like to introduce you to my sister Stevie. (I will save tales of my other fun and quirky siblings for future posts.)
In addition to being an artist, Stevie is also my connection to all things cool (and she is definitely as much fun as she looks in the picture above)! Once a week, the art school that Stevie attends holds life drawing sessions. Last night I went with Stevie for some much needed figure drawing practice...
Going into the life drawing session, I had these grand illusions (more like delusions) of creating wonderful finished pieces to post on my blog today. The reality of the situation is that I discovered I am very rusty and my figure drawing muscles are in need of some serious exercise!
After returning home and looking over my drawings I added a quote to this sketchbook page:
"Never neglect an opportunity for improvement."
-Sir William Jones
I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity to work on my skills with my sister (and friend) - I am certainly not going to neglect it... Stay tuned for more figure studies!
