A couple of foreshortening demos of a terrific model named Ashleigh from my workshop at the Lyme Art Association. I had a great time working with the wonderful people there!

Day 6:
These past few days I’ve been really tired in the evenings, but I think it’s actually working in my favor where the #onehourflowers are concerned.

When @16thstreetstudios had an open house 2 years ago, I walked into Gwen's studio for the first time. I was thunderstruck by her style and told her so...👍We arranged a photo shoot and I approached the session with enthusiasm, passion, and abandon… and she captured it with her lense. She portrays the photos that she makes upon a wall where she tapes a canvas, and these beautiful oil paints emerge. Of all the pieces that she made from the first photo shoot, this one was by far my favorite and we named it Receiving. 😊Very little ‘Joseph’ art is ever exhibited in my house...this one lives on my living room wall.

Sharks! 🦈 Here are some bad boys I sketched at @maritimeaquarium after seeing these dead eyed beauties. Forgot to write down what type of shark they were. I sketched these rough at the aquarium and then finished them up a bit later, so don’t expect anatomical correctness. Aptly enough these guys embody my mood after a crazy work week. (See my story) 😉

I am in a fishy mood so I'm gonna rap this sh#$& soon a'ight?

FISH

You are the fish who caught me
With billions more  in the sea why
You’re the one who ended up here
I wonder now every morning.

My best dress was already a net.
That was to be my strong defense
Against the by-catch with all the rest
But you knew how to turn my head.

I was hooked right away
that needle edge  pierced through my vein
Like a drug in a cell it must be retained
To prevent the blood shed. I said!

Do not touch! My fish!
Read the salt on my pink flesh.
I never wanted it to end!
So That’s how I preserve myself

To taste much better than them all!
But you decided to let me go. 
Or maybe  I slipped right out 
Because  I didn’t want to die.

While the bait is still in my tongue 
I cannot find my skin and bones.
I think I left them in a dream 
at the bottom of a deep sea.

There is a home 
There is a fish in love
There I am not sole. There is this
whole beautiful world.

The next thing I hear is a flush down the drain
So I must be awake.
You’re now ready to catch fresh.
But all you see is the rotten flesh 
Left when the salt melts away
From all that other prey.
At the bottom of reality I can see
you now wish to be in my dream.

Please
Lay in my wound bed right here
And lick the walls off my remains
Before it's too late.

I am in a fishy mood so I'm gonna rap this sh#$& soon a'ight?

All my secrets: 
1. Highlight
2. Middletones
3. Core Shaddow
4. Reflected Light
5. Cast Shaddow

As a general rule, 1 & 2 are touched by primary light and 3-5 will only get secondary light  Decoded:
"The darkest dark in the light (2) is always lighter than the lightest light (4) in the dark"

Hello darkness my old friend! 🖤 This is a little skull that was a lot of fun to get to know. And a lot of sadness still to not understand after all the time. He’s flat. My question, what do I need to do to make him “pop” into space? .

Coffee with George- if you are wondering why i spend so much time with Bridgman it is because of the movement contained in his drawings - it not about drawing like him - none of his students ever did - it is about creating drawings that have some sign of life. Nothing is more deadly than window-shade academic carpel tunnel tonal trancing. #classicallytrained #classicallytrainedartist #classicaldrawing #aslnyc #artstudentsleagueofnewyork #figuredrawing #figuredrawings #gesturedrawings #figurestudy #figurestudies #lifedrawing #drawingfromlife #georgebridgman #robertbeverlyhale #johnvanderpoel #signodx #uniballdrawing
