Drawing Class

Drawing class started yesterday! Our instructor is Vernon Rieta, and I really like how he teaches. He seems to be into teaching the human form and that's great for me because that's what I'm interested in.

Our project yesterday was to draw a wooden model thing that was displayed on the table. We were given a certain amount of time, and then Vernon would reposition the model. We were supposed to draw three different positions. I only managed to do two. I got stumped on getting the right perspective on a sticking out leg and ran out of time. 

Vernon went over each of our drawings and scribbled in his corrections (identified by me in red). I loved his scribbles so much that I asked him to sign the drawing. 


One of the best things about yesterday was that I met blog reader Cleta for the first time. She gave me these adorable greeting cards which are copies of watercolor paintings that she had previously done.

So cute, yah!! Thank you Cleta! And thank you for the cookies too!

Anon, Vernon mentioned that having live nude models is the best, but is not allowed in our class.

Erick, I know!!!

Hello Jalna,
You have to sign the Art work yourself. This your drawing with my correction added and not my drawing. Anyway we miss you at the class and thanks for the kind words. Vernon
