Life Drawing





Had a great five hour drawing session today with my friend Natalia. It was overcast and rainy so decided to work out of my home instead of the studio – Was one of those days in which it was just nice to be inside all day. I did a number of drawings, some straight with pen – Posted are my favorites of the batch. These are done on Canson Classic Cream at 14 x 17 inches. Also managed to work out a couple of concrete ideas for paintings.

  2. I just love drawings from life, and your direct line work is some of the best! Post more please, and maybe some of your sketchbook drawings (if you keep sketchbooks?).

  4. The composition of the last one would make an excellent painting.

    I was wondering if you teach life drawing? You seem to have a real passion for it. I started teaching figure drawing twice a week a few months ago and have rally learned a lot about my own work doing it. Never taught before but I'm enjoying it. Quote Robert Henri and invoke the specter of Schiele quite often.

    Would love to hear your thoughts on the subject if you were ever so inclined to jot some down.

  6. Hello Kent, you may know me from such comments in the 90's ... "Would you be willing to take me on as an understudy". Happy to report I did go and spend time with Barron Storey per your advice (best learning experience of my life). Just wanted to say Thank you for the guidance. As always your art never ceases to amaze, have purchased several pieces from your site.

  7. AMAZING! ...as always. It´s great that you have a blog, I am a spanish artist and a great admirer of your work. I would like to ask you if it´s in your plans to draw any comic book in the future? I love your paintings but I miss your storytelling, jeje!
    It would be an honour if you can have a look to my stuff and give me your opinion.

  9. Kent, are you drawing with a reed pen for some of this? Some of the strokes are so nice and fat, with a wide edge... care to share, regarding the tools?

    Lovely, lovely drawings, needless to say.
