Today we remembered Yoko, a very respected and well loved fellow artist, with a luncheon after the figure drawing session. Yoko ran the Sunday life drawing workshop diligently for over 30 years. She passed away a few weeks ago.
It was a huge turnout, the most people I’ve ever seen in that drawing room at one time in all the years that I’ve been there. There were artist friends that I met there about 30 years ago that don’t attend the workshop anymore but showed up for this day. It was just great to see them again.
The food was great and more than enough for everyone. Kudos for Scott G. for putting together this luncheon.
But there was a figure drawing session first and we had one of our favorite models. His poses are just amazing. He has a way of contorting his body in many different angles.
Below are three of the twenty-minute poses that I drew with charcoal on toned paper.
