In preparation for my upcoming
workshop May 12,
I used my class as "guinea pigs" this week.
Since we didn't have a model, I did a quick
10 minute demo for them
using an image I took last weekend at the beach.
Then I'd bought some great white cotton dresses
and big floppy hats at TJ Max,
so we took turns modeling in the sun.
I set the timer for 10 minute poses,
but I found that just wasn't enough time.
It was frustrating to most, including me!
You clearly need to get a really accurate initial drawing
of the figure for these to work!
We will be doing this often for practice
and we'll spend more time on each pose.
It's a real challenge and so fun!
