Figures on Fridays

July 21, 2013

There was joy in the studio earlier this year when I finally found a figure drawing/painting group to join. Since then, almost all of my Friday nights have been spent in happy meditation on the human figure. This oil sketch is from the last session.

2013.07.19This model’s look really put me in mind of John Steuart Curry‘s vision of John Brown in his painting Tragic Prelude:

john-brown-1939But my view did not include a frenzied glare. I rendered him so he could have been a worker hero in a Steinbeck novel instead. I could see him working in Cannery Row. Which at least brings this blog post back to books, even if it isn’t a picture book.
