Marble Falls Drawing Demonstration


My friend Gaye Sekula drove up to Marble Falls with me today for the drawing demo I did for the wonderful Highland Arts Guild. So, of course, she was drafted to be the model for a quick sketch I did at the very end. Thanks, Gaye!


I projected the image of a cowboy in black and white from my computer and showed how to find and compare reference points on the subject in order to be sure of the accuracy of a drawing, and how to use guide lines and grid overlays to check one's work.
I was asked smart questions and really enjoyed talking with the members of the Guild. After the demo they had a tasty lunch for us and time to chat. While I was there, the idea of a workshop in November was brought up, and it was quickly filled to capacity. I'm looking forward to more time with these fun artists!

sounds like this would have been a really informative drawing demo Susan. I dont know about finding reference points or grid overlays...just bumble along and doing lots of corrections as i go. I hope to learn some tips in a workshop i will attend in November in Toronto. Instructor will be Dan Thompson, whom i greatly admire as an artist. So excited about that one.

You are in your element! Looks like you and the class are having a wonderful time. Lucky girls! Wish I lived close by to take advantage of this. Love both of the portraits you've posted.
