Portrait Drawing Roundtable #3

  • to
  • This location is shown only to members

  • The third meet up of the series. Each time the meet up is open to new members as well. This session you'll have the chance to sketch bust/head portraits as well as half-length or full-body portraits/gesture, dependent on each poser's go-ahead.  Folks posing get to sit (or lounge, or lay) on a super comfy futon chair. Half-hour poses, long enough to make some headway on a sketch but short enough that no one ends up sitting all night and not drawing. We'll shoot for 4 or 5 posing sessions, with time between for chatting, technique-sharing and consumables.

    Any media is welcome as long as you can bring a surface to work on -- I won't have a table for drawing, but I'll have a combination of chairs and beanbags (and the floor, if you like!).

    This isn't meant to be a formal class, just a group drawing session, but discussion of techniques and results will be highly encouraged so we can all make the most of our time and develop greater skills in portraiture. I also have art books available for browsing.

    Chances are I'm making a casserole or such, so if you're thinking of coming and have any allergies/dietary needs/strong dislikes please let me know ahead of time! Feel free to bring snacks to share as well.

    Location notes: As with Adrienne's and Heather's, I also have a cat. I'll send out my address to folks who RSVP. I'm on a main road right off the highway, easy to get to. Unfortunately we're a second-floor apartment and don't have an elevator, but if you need accommodations we'll make something work!

    Hi all -- if the weather is really horrific tomorrow I may cancel/move this from Sunday to another weekend -- how does everyone feel about it?

      s'ok with me; hopefully will get plowed out tomorrow but my plow guy knows I don't work until Monday so I may be low on the list!

    I hope to be there if the weather is good but, I agree, if the driving is hazardous, I'd prefer to change the date. Thanks, Janice

    If the roads are clear, I should be able to get there from Shelburne Falls--if my stupid jeep starts. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

    With the storm coming in on Sunday, I'm sure not to make it over to Greenfield. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and I'll make it to the next one in Amherst - a little closer to home. Sorry to miss this.

    Turns out I'll be out of town on Sunday-so sorry to miss out. Please share pictures everyone!

    Hi JJ, I'm looking forward to meeting you and drawing with others there. You asked about food, so just to let you know I can't eat gluten; if this is difficult though, in terms of what you're planning on making, don't worry; I can also bring some food. When you send your address, would you mind including a phone number - just in case I get lost? Thanks, and see you on the 15th.

    This a a bit of a drive for me, tho as long as the weather is OK, I should be able to make it. Looking forward to it.
