Our model today was Jane F.  She is tall and elegant and every little gesture and pose looked so graceful.  These drawings don't do her justice but it was fun working with the iPad and trying to figure out strategies.  I had the most trouble fitting the entire figure onto the page.  Practice, practice, practice.  The usual combination of very short to longer poses were done in a two hour period.  It was fun drawing a friend with other friends.  Hopefully, these sessions will go on once a month.  We are heading into the holiday season so, we'll see what happens.  

I would like to get better using the iPad programs.  It was nice having so little equipment to haul around.
Here are the rest of the drawings for the day.  I used the Sketch Club program for these.

Thank you for the info. As I'm not familiar with iPad, your demos are very interesting.

Oh, these are so stunning! The lines are so elegant I can't believe there are done on an IPad -- you are so skilled in using these programs. I need to borrow my husband's ipad for a few hours and try my luck :)

Wonderful work, Myrna. The last one grabs me the most because of the fluid lines and sense of movement you've captured!

My, isn't technology wonderful?!!!
Of course one has to be able to master the tools and you certainly have. Lovely work.

Sadami, Thanks for the comment.

Meera, try your hand on the iPad. Let me know how it goes!

Hi Autumn. Thanks for checking in.

Jane, you are an inspiration. I never feel I have captured your languid grace.

Jo, technology is wonderful and moving at an alarming pace. It is a challenge to keep up.

Hi Illeta. Thank you for the comment.

Candy, nice to hear from you again! said...

Hi Myrna, I am loving everything you put on your blogs, so very informative!
I have been an art teacher for over 40 years! ugh! Getting old sucks!
These slides and all the recommended books you mention are invaluable to any teacher, I thank you so much!
I have an IPad as well, and use the Sketch Club program with my stylus, still not as well as you, but daily it gets better.
Thanks again for all you give,
