    is it just me or does that place look extremely clean? I am guessing you just clean the bits you take pics of and the other side is like a whole mountain of art stuff.. err.. maybe not bottle of powerade!!

    I am amazed....that I missed this sketchbook....Mind if I add it? The studies are simply fantastic, shading is surreal, and your process and methods are to reckoned with....

    MOAR!!

    Very cool to see more of the studio. You should have put on the cowboy hat for the picture !

    What an awesome opportunity to work and train with Mr. Whitaker- I am quite envious of those giant windows in his studio!

    What a coicidence, I was just pouring over a Nicolai Fechin book for the first time yesterday! I was actually quite fond of that particular drawing too.

    I'm curious though. Bill Whitaker lives in Provo right? Are you still doing any life drawing studies like you were earlier, or are you working up to that? I believe they don't have undraped models at BYU, and that the students have to drive over to Springville to get their undraped model life drawing. Or would Bill just do that sort of thing in his studio? I'm just wondering because I've found it hard to get some decent life drawing here in Utah. I live in St. George, and I drive up to SUU in Cedar City weekly to get my undraped life drawing on.

    Rebeccak--hehe, I think I'm getting the better end of the deal.
    bumskee--well, part of the reason it looks so clean is because the studio is brand new! Construction was finished just a little while ago and finishing touches are being done now.
    Stark--sure, and thank you!
    Idiot Apathy--lol
    reidaj--the windows are wonderful, and one of the most important things to having good working conditions, I think.
    WillSchnevel--hmm, the place I used to work provided life drawing for us once a week and Springville and Provo Art & Frame also have figure drawing. Yeah, Bill's in Provo...not sure what he does as he hasn't had a model over in the new studio yet.

    Ok, here's something just for fun. Me sitting next to the easel. See my nice, comfy chair?

    I was wondering. What exactly is the purpose of copying the Fechin drawing so
    accurately? Cause it looks like he drew it with a sense of detail, sure, yet quickly
    with bold strokes and lots of fluid lines.

    If you're so tightly rendering it this way, doesn't it defy the purpose in the sense
    that Fechin didn't drew it this way?

    Any feedback on this is much appreciated. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.

    Comfy chairs = cool work? Big windows = awesomer work? Sharpened pencils = death machine? Very inspiring thread Emily, needs to go concentrate now.

    Very cool work and very inspiring. I love those Bargue studies, and thanks for posting the info on materials and processes used. It looks like a great learning tool.

    Great picture! Great Progress
    I'm seriously in love with this portrait, giving me lots of ideas to play with. I should go check out some more Fechin.

    bumskee--hehehe, thanks for looking in!
    Art_Addict--true, I'm sure Fechin drew it in a much more spontaneous way, but by copying it exactly I think I am really getting it into my brain. That way, when I go to do my own work, I can remember what he did and do it spontaneously as well.
    Zord--hehe, yeah all of those things are helpful elements!
    hito--thanks! glad you stopped by.
    Chromosome--you're welcome. It is great, you should try it yourself!
    Darktwin--thank you very much!
    Idiot Apathy--thanks, I'm glad you like it.
    Call0ps--hehe, it is nice. Thank you.

    Update on the Fechin.
