I've also always been seriously terrible at writing thank you cards in a timely manner (or ever at all) and thus these thank yous are about 5 years overdue and I wish to remedy that!
Post #1: Advanced Figure Drawing (circa 2008) with Patrick Earl Hammie:
As for my subject matter, I chose to work with the "Figure in Repose" I really loved the idea of the dreamlike, trailing off moments that you experience in waking or falling asleep and also the heaviness of deep sleep. It became even more exciting for me when I started incorporating 2 figures and the use of negative space. Each drawing is from the same 4' wide paper roll, and ranged in height from 4' - 7'. I used chunk charcoal, sand paper and pastel which let me develop rich blacks, touches of tone and color and offer a loose and ethereal feeling to my drawing style.
Thank you Patrick!
