    Thanks House Hatke! Ateliers can vary in their methods and their structure as well as the quality of teaching based on the skill/knowledge of the main instructor. I have studied at two different ateliers and discovered how different they can be! The one I study at now is simply amazing and immensely better in every area than my former one. Thank you for your encouragement. I do hope and believe I am growing and I look forward to beginning painting sometime this year.

    Thanks Ellis B. I am glad! I think the middle is the hardest part of every artwork. Keep pressing forward!

    Hi Jonromero! So great to meet you. I am really impressed by your paintings! I love the figurative studies you do, even the quick studies. You have a natural ability at capturing the figure and I look forward to seeing more and more of your work in the future. Thank you for your encouragement!

    Below are two updated pictures of my Brutus Cast drawing and my recent figure drawing. I will try and write more soon. This figure drawing has been the HARDEST drawing I have done to date. O.O I only have 3 days left on it too!

    Beautiful to look at Lara, your figure drawing is starting to remind me of the Russian Academic drawings I so admire. Great to see the progress you are making.

    Hey guys,

    I am sorry for the long delay in updating this thread. My husband and I had an unexpected event occur in our lives several months ago. At the end of March my husband had a routine surgery that was suppose to keep him in the hospital for 2 days and at home recovering for roughly 1 week. Unfortunately, he fell into the category of the rare 1% of people who suffer severe complications from this surgery. He spent a total of 15 days in the hospital and has spent over 60 days recovering at home. He is on short-term disability, cannot eat or drink, and receives all his nutrition through IV. This has been a very long journey for both of us and hopefully by the end of July he will be past all of this and will be able to return to work.

    Due to this I have had to miss a great deal of studio time and the time I was able to be in the studio, I know I was more distracted than I would have liked. I missed a total of 5 weeks, but I was able to return for our last 5 week pose.

    The Brutus cast is just a repeat image from where I left off before leaving the studio for several weeks. The figure drawing is the early stages of our last 5 week drawing that I was able to return to the studio in time to work on. I will have completed pictures of both in the next few days.



    Thanks so much sharks and Cameronator. It is always encouraging to receive such kind words.

    Thank youMarian Rowling! I have only seen some of the Russian Academic drawings, but I adore some of the Russian Painters. Ilya Repin is actually my favorite artist and I have just recently discovered Ivan Kramskoy (Kramskoi). How have you been the last few months? Well, I hope.

    Many thanks to derekdedgell, Sean McClain, and udonhead for all your encouraging words.

    Thanks Neyut. I would love to explain, as best I can, about my shading. But I am unsure exactly what you would like to know. I use Vine charcoal and build it up slowly over a matter of weeks. Unfortunately, much of the technique and approach is very complex and would be very hard to explain on here. I hope to do a tutorial at some point as that I feel this could be rather helpful. I know years ago, before having the opportunity to train at my current atelier, I would have greatly appreciated a tutorial. I still do appreciate them!!

    Thanks GEB and Chris Sanders!

    Now for a couple of photos of my completed work. The completed Brutus Cast as well as my final figure drawing of the trimester. I am not too pleased with it, but considering everything going on outside the studio I am not unhappy with it either.

    The final drawing is a two day charcoal study of John. I had a lot of fun doing it and I plan to do another one next week!

    Happy 4th of July!

    Hey Lara beautiful updates again. I think the female pose has a very soft quality to it which is very nice. Really like the look of the latest pose. I don't know if it is possible for you to do, later on maybe, but I would be interested in seeing the very first steps you take with your figures, like which measurement you use and where and how you start on different poses.

    some back poses can be pretty boring but when the light is almost directly over head it creates great shadows just like on the last piece. Looking forward to more.
