Old Friends, New Drawings


One of my favorite things is when the members of Studio 1482 get together for a day of drawing. Today we worked with Patrick, an actor and model who is almost as old a friend to us as we are to each other. His poses are by turns passionate and emotional and then, when he adds a hat and plaid pants, fashionably elegant.

Even though a few of the studio members were sick and we missed their presence, it was still a magical day. I think drawing with friends in the studio is about as close to heaven as we can get in this life. Anyway, that’s how it feels to me. Posting a few drawings here to share…

    These are absolutely stunning, Ronnie! Something very special about the collaboration of artist and model.

    These are very beautiful, inspiring and varied. I love the “skeletal” one with the fluorescent green femur. And I like the ‘dandy’ in plaid & bowler done in a quick-gestural/non-precious way. The contrast of atmospheric & structural drawings gives the series a very holistic human experience.
