Statues Make Good Models for Drawing!
The other day I had time between clients to walk downtown and draw. I chose to sit on a bench facing these bronze statues. I like them a lot. I have drawn them once before, but I think I did a better job this time. There is still room for improvement...maybe I could have turned my paper the other direction and gotten the guys whole body...but then I would have gotten less of the stores in the background. Choices. And his arm reaching up could have been better proportioned. As it is I have to pretend he had polio as a child and the arm is small because of it.
A man with a new camera came by and took photos of the statues. I am pretty sure he also took photos of me drawing them.
A family came by and ogled at me drawing. They made appreciative noises and that made me happy.
So the girl statues face is #12 for the 29 Faces in September Challenge...
And the guy is #13...so now I am ahead of the game!
And this little bunny that I picked up at a thrift store and will take to my grand daughter Allie Bel next time I see her is here to wish you all a very happy Animal Wednesday, as Henry V is no where to be found.
