Missed seeing your work. Glad you're back in the game.
I've said it before, your planes or surfaces remind me of Cezanne.
If the hiker hadn't beat me to it I'd have said Cezanne as well. Elegant. Beautiful shadow under the scapula (is that what it's called or am I thinking of a cooking instrument?)
See? Now you know I'm right. Now hand me that scapula because I need to flip the eggs.
Thanks, Margaret. Glad to be back. AH and PA, I checked to see what else we call that part of the body. "Shoulder blade" just isn't as elegant--or as wieldy--"scapula".Michelle is a terrific model. Unfortunately, I was very late to the three-hour session, and only got a brief time to draw her.
Scapula is the right word. The horizontal highlight is at the spine of the scapula and the corner or "roof" at the top of the arm is the acromian process of the scapula. Okay...I'll stop...taught Life Drawing for too long.By the way, Jean, I have a real skeleton that people are welcome to come over and draw. I already told PasAdj that she is welcome to draw it. It is complete except for the lower leg on one side. I also have an extra shoulder and arm.
Thanks, Shanna. Don't stop; it's interesting--and, like the song, once you start on one body part, you just naturally move on to the next.Thanks also for the offer; this is something I want to do. But I'm not local anymore. I now have Austin as a home base (just moved).

AUSTIN !!!!!That is where I am from. Austin is my homeland, my heartland. I graduated from the University, U.T. Austin, and have family there. I want to know more. Watch for an email from me - and thanks for yours about my pastel skies.
I'm excited to be there--and I look forward to seeing what you have to say about Austin.
Wonderful drawings!! I wonder if you drawed on white paper or on grey paper.Greetings.
Hi, Annie! White paper, here.
