Sketching friends have invited me to life drawing sessions. I’ve not been interested. I did that in college and no longer saw the relevance for my current art interest…. Urban Sketching.
I’ve been working my way through the book of Urban Sketcher whose blog I’ve followed for a couple years and whose work I admire. The “Analog Artist in a Digital World”, Thomas Thorspecken, just released Urban Sketching: The Complete Guide to Techniques. He is selling it on Amazon.
He provides an alternative view of life drawing sessions. He goes but draws the entire setting, including both the model and the other artists. It gives him practice for drawing the events, with people, he often sketches for his blog.
Hmmm. Maybe there is a Dr. Sketchy session in my future. Or some other venue.
