Portrait: Depression Era Dude

Came across a selection of historical photos from the Great Depression. Wonderful expressions in those (and some impressive hairstyles too!)

Still Life: Onion Study

Left this on my kitchen windowsill until it started to sprout.  I loved the curves that formed as the stalks reached toward the sun.

Costume Drawing

Headed down to do some costume drawing at AiPD last night . . .
It all started off pretty realistically

Then I went for a stronger sense of rhythm and movement

Then I moved away from realistic proportion

And finally ended up doing these sorts of things to the model.
All in all a pretty good time.
