Michelle -- Art Group Sketch
Acrylic on canvas
14 x 18 inches
Barbara Muir © 2018I've been a member of the Don Valley Art Club for
15 years. One of the best things about that for me
is the portrait and figure drawing evenings held once
a week. For the past two years a variety of injuries
and teaching assignments have mostly kept me away,
and I was missing it keenly.
So this week I got some help (carrying is not my
strong suit since I broke my arm last winter), and
joined my group again! Yay! What a welcome!
And a lovely hour and a half of painting followed.
There is something so inspiring about working
beside other artists whose work you love. And a
live model is a particularly wonderful treat.
Michelle #2 -- Art Group Sketch
Acrylic on Birch Panel
6 x 8 inches
Barbara Muir © 2018In this case Michelle was an engaging and lovely
model. I set up beside Frank Pasian, who always
produces multiples in an evening, and inspired by him
worked on two sketches. Both make me happy.
Have a working with your art friends day.
