Back to College...
I found a bunch of my old sketchbooks from ASU. Yes. I kept a lot of them. Again, they are fun to look back at.
This one is an actual man that used to pose for our life drawing class. He rode up on a bicycle every Tuesday and Thursday and sat for an hour while we drew his portrait. I always thought that he looked like something from Michaelangelo's time. Fun to draw...
Anyway. All of these sketches were done in less than a minute. Some were 30 seconds! That was to get you to put down on paper what you were seeing fast.
It took me about two minutes to put him down on paper.
This was one part of the life drawing that came in handy. I can still do a pretty fast sketch of someone if I need to.
Please don't ask me why I was drawing snails... Maybe because the lecturer was soooo slow and boring...
I have the side dishes ready for tomorrow. All I have to do is shove them in the oven with the ham and sit down and open presents.
April, Seth and Amare are coming over. As are Seth's parents. They came down from Phoenix today. This is the family tradition. April and Seth have a very small house and we only tried it there once... Not enough room to swing a cat, let alone open presents.
I am going back and look through more notebooks now.
Happy Christmas Eve! See you tomorrow.
