Life Drawing

Posted on 23 Oct 2012 in Drawing | Comments Off on Life Drawing

Life drawing was finally back on. I’ve found that it’s hard to get started after such a long break. In between the months since  life drawing I’ve been practising faces and hands. Proportions took  a little longer to get right.

It’s clear that I need to practice drawing the figure more, maybe with clothing. I’m still working with charcoal, I haven’t really felt the need to move onto another medium. Saying that I’ve got more interest in ink drawings, perhaps I will try that in one session.

This night we had an elder gentleman called Adrian. He was great, brought along his own props and asked to photograph everyone’s drawings.

I’m very confident with faces now.

I’m actually quite happy how the proportions turned out in this one.

Of course one session must always have a What was I thinking? drawing.
