Figure drawings from Spring Street

I really liked Spring Street studio. It's a disorienting descent from the hubbub of Soho's shoppers, down a flight of filthy orange stairs, and into a studio featuring a disrobed woman and a dozen or so devotees to the human form. It's cluttered and cozy and frequented mostly by old drawing-curmudgeons.

It's nice to know there are spaces in New York City purely preserved for observation, while incessant pedestrian footfalls patter overhead, and trains rumble underfoot. I aim to become as familiar there as piece of the battered furniture.

The tilt of this pose reminded me of the Johnnie Walker logo.

Figures from BAS a couple of weeks back.

Brooklyn Artist Gym recently rebranded as Brooklyn Art Space. Maybe a wise choice. Sounds less sweaty.

Rita does a lot of reading

Her nose might be kinda funky here. It was a dramatic angle. See her in person to judge for yourself.

Rita reading

Rita was sweet enough to sit for me (on an improvised model-stand comprised of a coffee table found on the sidewalk, with a chair atop it). Her feet are perched on a small book shelf...but at least I positioned her directly next to the radiator. Need to come up with a better solution. Also a five-minute self-portrait (drawn after drinking a couple of ears aren't really that big).

Figure Drawings

A friend handed me some compressed charcoal and conte crayon at this session, which forced me to deviate from what's become my regular impulse: vine charcoal.
