A journey from the hospital to the studio

Best of figure study class

Hello everyone,
My 12 week figure class is over, which is very sad. We met ever Wednesday AM. I felt lost this morning not going. So I decided pick out and post a few studies from the bunch. Please note, these are live, nude models I worked from. The poses are between 35-60 minutes long. So you learn to work quickly. A lot of my proportions are off, but oh well, that’s how practice is. It’s not perfect.
Most studies were completed in charcoal. But my last three weeks I did pen and ink. Which is sorta scary to not be able to erase mistakes. But that’s part if the journey

I recently got a twitter (Leigh Elliot @ nursetoartist) and Instagram (leighannelliott1)

Love always and be true to yourself,
Leigh

Silence broken!

It’s been a long time. I have excuses- none very good. So I’m just going to move on.
Lately, I’ve been doing nothing but
boring drawing exercises and when I draw something, I hate it. I have been encouraged by many of my loved ones lately. They tell me this is normal in the creative process. So, I’ve loosened up a bit and with the encouragement of one if my tutors. Here is the making of a new- kinda abstract piece.

This is called “wind swept tree”
It started out from a sketch of a tree at the beach in my sketchbook.
Enjoy,
