A place for artists who studied drawing in James McMullan's High Focus Drawing program at the School of Visual Arts to post and discuss drawings. What did you learn and what still resonates? What remains consistent and what (if any) deviations have had significant impact on you and your work as a professional?

October 16, 2011 - more Parker
Here are some more Parker poses from the October 16 session at CalArts. I am attacking the short poses as a warm up to these longer poses. My hope is I can keep moving quickly through the drawing without getting caught up in too many fussy details. I do move a bit slower and more carefully but, I know if I go too slow, I lose my way and wind up with a drawing of a foot and the back of a knee. I have to maintain a sense of urgency as I move through the drawing or I begin to concentrate on one area and lose track the whole pose.
