Tall Grass Art Center Life Drawing Workshop



The rain on Sunday had canceled out my hiking date with Mom. I jumped on opportunity to stretch some more and head out to Park Forest for a couple hours sketching Bob. Been some time since I've drawn Bob and he holds his poses so well, allowing participants to get a complete sense of the form. These two 15 minute sketches in the warming up period. These 15 minute poses are missed from regular workshops. They allow for natural poses that wouldn't hold well for an hour. There hadn't been music or wine or snacks, but there was a friendly banter among the artists that was amusing. An hour fifteen minute drive, but a direction I was overdue to head. Thanks Bob!

Hi Doris,
Let me know next time drawing class is out my way. I have got to start pushing my own envelope. Your work continues to have a magical quality to it. I LOVE the second image, the pose with the hat so unique. And the lines are just glowing, energy lines, the essence of the poser. Breathtaking. Is that just black paper? Very effective as backdrop!

It's every other Sunday, 3-5pm.
April will be the 11th and 18th to accommodate the holiday.
