Girl with a Pearl Earring by Candle Light

November 8, 2010 - This night we will be drawing/painting Ale as Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring. She will be wearing the same clothes as in the painting and this will be a 3 hour pose.
Both the model and all the artists will only be using candle light, no electricity involved.
Brian Pease has been nice enough to agree to host this event at Mojo Studio. His only concern is: "the wax (even with the few we light at openings always seems to get spilled and it's difficult to clean up, walls, floors, etc.). Perhaps we just ask people to be very careful and considerate of all the candles."
We will try to provide some candles, but please bring your own if you can and mind the comment above.
Drawing begins at 7, so try to arrive at 6:45
See you there,
Alessandra

Update:


"Wonderful! Ale and her costume were perfect. I enjoyed painting with candlelight, a good challenge. " -Carrie Hawkins

"Amazing. Great idea, Carrie, and Ale, fabulous work on the costume. You were beautiful. " -Elaine Swanger

The evening went off spectacularly. There was a good turnout. Ale posed in low light by candles and everyone drew one long pose for the evening . Pictures of the event can be seen over on the Meetup photo page for this event. Illustration shown here by Ariel Childers.

There's always some great new ideas to be seen over on our Meetup. Please join us next time if you can and halp us continue to make these superb events.

Special Thanks: to Bryan Pease and his Mojo Studio/Concrete Ocean Gallery for graciously hosting!
