Go Figure!

Figure Studies
Higgins Ink and brush, 18 x 24"

I had the opportunity to attend a figure drawing class at DreamWorks. (It's been a while). This time, I approached it differently by bringing my bottle of ink and brushes. I normally follow a more constructive approach to figure drawing while using some drawing pen/pencil-type tool. This was a huge leap for me to commit to a brush and work large. I was a bit nervous. These drawings aren't that great, but the experience was actually liberating. I can't wait until the next class.

There's a Big Bird Flying Over My House...

"Big Bird"
Winsor & Newton Ink, acrylic, and NuPastels, 18 x 24"

...And it looks like it's decided to stay!
It's making a mistake...
A big mistake!

Loosely inspired by listening to The B-52's, the song the describes a big, gray, bird. (I had always imagined it to be red). What is the bird? And, what does it want!?
