Sketching at the Gage Academy Drawing Jam

The studio was jammed with art, supplies and nick-knacks. By attention was ultimately drawn by two busts of the Roman Emperors Caesar and Augustus. I was particularly fascinated by the contrast between Caesar's sharp features and Augustus's soft cheek and jaw lines.

I was also drawn to an art's space, which explored mystical imagery. The space was fascinating due to the unusual perspective generated by the window sitting into the angle of the building's roof. In addition, I enjoyed the striking picture of a lion with a human head next to the space.
It has been a long time since I drew live models, and I enjoyed the challenge of drawing the human form. Besides the models, the artist and visitors provided great opportunities to draw the human form as well.

  1. Great sketches Logan! I like the simplicity of line and the dark and light values you were able to get.
