I don’t have a A3 scanner so I’m finding it a bit hard with the weather to take suitable photos of my life drawings. I’ve changed mediums again. I’m now using charcoal pencil and willow charcoal for the construction lines.
This sessions model was Nadia and I’ve come to love the difficult poses she’s so good at.
I’m still working on proportions, as you can see her leg isn’t correct.
10 min sketch without construction lines.
I’m trying to understand tone and lightning still. Another person explained I should be drawing in the high points and low points. The shading from that.
Quick 5 minute drawing.
Another 5 minute drawing.
15 minute drawing. I’m still having trouble with foreshortening.
I had trouble with the first drawing so I decided to start again. This time concentrating on a small part of the model. It paid off with detail.
