Drawings of Kika

Drawing from the model in the studio is my favorite way to spend  time. And it’s so wonderful to draw someone like Kika, a true performer who becomes many different people on the model stand. The last four days I had the opportunity to teach and draw with some wonderful artists in our Dalvero Academy advanced group. Below are some drawings of the always fabulous Kika, in her many forms…

Then she turned into a Pre-Raphaelite dream woman, below…

Like I said, I love to draw the model, especially one who invites you to take so many liberties as Kika does. Ready to head back to the studio for some more!

    I don’t know how you do it. I could never draw so quickly and have it turn out so brilliant. Perfection.

    Hey Tommy, thank you for saying that, you’re very kind. I’ll let you know the next time we are having an open house at our Brooklyn studio – you can come draw with us!
