On Sunday my friend Jane and I got together with my friend Jasmine for a little drawing session. A little back story here. Jasmine and I are coworkers and she facebooked that she wanted to wear 40’s era “city lady” clothing all the time. I commented she should turn it into an art project with photographs, taken out of time and place. Then I suggested she model for my friends and I in her clothing as a way to raise funds. We had to cancel once and I thought that the drawing session wasn’t going to happen.
This Sunday it happened. She showed up after getting lost and got dressed into her fab black dress. (I should have taken pictures of it.) We did some short poses of the her in the clothing and then she switched outfits and we did some longer poses.
It was a great way to help her raise some funds, granted I hope that if we do this again we get a full house and she’s able to really add a lot more to her collection of fantastic 40’s era clothing.
Take a look at my quick watercolors, I did a quick 10 minute pencil sketch and then added some watercolors to block out the shading. Sometimes adding a time restraint can be freeing.
Also, I'm counting this as my drawing-a-day post for sunday and today.
