We were saddened with the news of the passing of a dear artist Yoko, who ran this Sunday group for about three decades. I first met her when I started attending this Sunday workshop back in the early 80’s. She hired and scheduled the models, collected the money to pay the models, and timed the poses. We all benefited from her unselfish labor of love.
She was, herself, an excellent artist especially with pastels and charcoal. As Yoko got older she transitioned her responsibility to Scott, who is now handling the duty of keeping this Sunday life drawing workshop going. I must say, she passed the torch on to the right person for this Sunday workshop is as well attended as ever.
As for today’s workshop we had a bald male model, an old timer that we’ve drawn many times before. Sometimes I find him difficult to draw but I thought I was able to get a couple good drawings off of him.
