Figure Drawing

Last monday nights model at the ARTS Project was great! Energetic, creative poses. This is one of the many, many gestures. The gesture drawing is in india ink on matt board, prepainted with acrylic paint, ramdom and abstract, nice warm colours. I like the textured surface of the this matt board. I think the drawing, needs more drawing, just not sure what I will add ... The pink makes me think of the CIBC Run for a Cure, which I will be running in next Sunday.

Figure Drawing

Attended a figure drawing session at The Arts Project for the first time in months. Great model on monday night. The sessions have changed slightly with new person looking after the timing. Many,many short gesture poses starting at 30 sec, 1 min, etc, which I really like. Attached is a couple of the sketches in the 3 to 5 minute range. Hopefully get there again next monday night.

Country Club Golf

2 days in a row off work, means 2 days in a row of golf. The Country Club on Sunday and Heron Point on holiday Monday.

The Country Club, a traditional old course, is set in the rolling hills of the Humber River Valley in Woodbridge. There are two 18-hole courses were created by the distinguished designer Howard Watson and fine-tuned by renowned architect Arthur Hills. We played the East Course, which undulates along the valley's edge, offering spectacular views of the surrounding hills and Toronto to the south. Two of the four sketches I did while playing at The Country Club.
Hole number 1, completed while waiting to tee off.
Hole #6, started while waiting for group in front of us, and finished as we played the hole.

The gallery is located in Bayfield Ontario, a beautiful and historic little town on the shores of Lake Huron. My work will be there from now to December 20. Drawings include male and female figurative art and golf art. I will be taking some architectural and some more golf images in mid September. If you are in the area, check it out.
