ODS#30: Rodin Drawings & Watercolors


We all know Rodin’s powerful sculptures, animated by uncontainable emotional life that challenges the material they are built with.

Rodin was also an incredibly prolific draftsman, his drawings also emanate strong energy, but very different from the one expressed by his works in bronze. His drawings are quick, almost compulsively thrown out of the pencil and the brush, bathing in flooding washes of ink or watercolor where they thrive.

How can we not dedicate a Drawing Session to this modern Master?

Join me, Thursday July 28, from 6:00 to 8:30 PM, to copy a few of his inspiring nudes.

Bring graphite, charcoal, blending stumps, a few watercolors, lightly tan toned paper and white paper, to chase his agile technique and have fun doing it.
