Ateler Practice

See this informative post by Bill Sharp on the Atelier disciplines. He offers you a nice list of realist art bloggers.

Casey, Thanks for your comment on my blog and for the mention.

I agree with you about Seattle vs. Florence. I hope that works out for you.

Ha ha! I'm really just thinking out loud regarding these Ateliers. Can you say, "pipe dream"?

Great to meet you, though, Bill. I'll be looking in on your blog.

I would have loved to have attended an ateliers but could never find one nearby :(

Well, Corrine, I am determined to study classic drawing on my own, as I always have. I like the stories about the art students crying from the stress, and the intensity of a lengthy course is to be admired.

But, hello. Can I draw, anyway? Yes, I think the path to drawing (let alone painting) has many avenues. I drew over 100,000 drawings from age four til HS graduation. That counts for something, too.

For me classic drawing studies has been essential. You are reminding me that maybe I should get back to doing some.

Now that I am free from any obligations (shows) and I don't want to do any for a few years I can spend some time doing some studies. I feel that I have gotten a bit lazy in this regard.
