At our Figure Drawing session at Studio b., Thursday this week, we drew in the open air, in the courtyard by the pool. Studio b. is a wonderful venue for events of all sorts, including many a reception for any number of creative pursuits. The activity often spills over into the courtyard where the pool and the pool fountain form a serene backdrop to whatever is going on. A board on two ropes hangs as a swing in front of the pool, a little catawampus, but serviceable. The model posed near the old washtubs for our warm-up drawing, and then she posed leaning against one of the arbor pillars, and sitting on the swing, and then lying on a bench. Four artists enjoyed the evening of shared community and artistic passion, while Colleen Duffley, owner of Studio b., and her assistant worked in the adjoining room. I drew the following sketches there this week.
