I haven’t been to life drawing for a while and the first session I turn up to the model decides to call in sick. The session wasn’t lost, we decided to concentrate on drawing portraits of each other instead. Each sitting went for about 30 minutes, which is why most of the models eyes are closed. There was also had a halogen light on the model to get some nice shadows. I started using charcoal pencil instead of willow charcoal, which gave me better control over my drawings. It’s funny once I get control I will probably want to lose it again.
I feel that I have improved from when I started going last year. I plan to attend more regularly from now on.
I think the above drawing shows how much construction lines can help!
