Emily Metalskin channels Mata Hari

A few weeks ago, I attended a zoom-based life drawing session with Emily Metalskin channeling Mata Hari. Emily is one of a handful of models I’ve drawn who can emote and make a virtual session come so alive, that you forget you aren’t in the room with her.

When drawing from home, I draw on an assortment of papers, throwing them down on my studio floor as I switch to the next pose. I photographed the pieces as I put them down, so here they are in the sequence in which they landed on my floor.

Warming up
More charcoal sketches
Yet another charcoal sketch
Mixed media profile
Back to charcoal with a touch of crayon
Watercolor and crayon
Last one: Ink, graphite, and crayon

I’m looking to go back to a regular in-person life drawing session within a half hour’s drive from home (San Jose, California). If you are local and know of one, let me know, please?
