My materials came today in the mail -- acrylics, a few brushes, as well as plenty of canvas. I'm focusing on abstract art and still life for the moment, but I hope to move on to landscapes and portraits, too.
I've always loved the atmosphere one can find at a paint studio. From funky art students and equally colorful instructors, to the smell of the materials and just the relaxed vibe, it's one of my favorite past times. I've made a point of rediscovering it again.
I found the art world my accident, by posing nude for a few art classes. Despite my harping on about anonymity, these nude sessions were before I started my career in escorting. I was hesitant at first, but soon found myself quite comfortable being naked in a room full of strangers. A precursor to my current occupation, perhaps?
The idea for this entry came this past weekend, I was watching Titanic with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. The famous scene in which DiCaprio's character sketches a topless Kate Winslet is classic -- and highly erotic, at least in my opinion.
I've photographed a client before, but never sketched one. I'm a decent drawer, but nothing exceptional. Not sure how my agent would react to me sketching a client, seeing how it would likely take another hour, one that the client probably wouldn't want to pay for.
Oh, and just for those who are curious, nothing on the nine-to-five job front. Looks like I'm in escorting until I come across something worth my time.
