Recently I’ve spoken to a few people about their life drawing, and one thing that’s kept coming up is hands, feet, and faces. It’s really clear when I look at work that has these things missing. They’re tough to draw – don’t I know it! Sadly, they will still be difficult to draw if youContinue reading “Hand Studies”
Sue modelled at last night’s life drawing session.
Hannah modelled at last night’s session.
This week our model was Alexa.
Danna modelled at this week’s life drawing session. Her poses were often unusual and pretty challenging to draw! I set myself an additional challenge this week of drawing the longer poses in colour. I’ve done a few digital studies from photographs recently, but it has been a long time since I’ve used colour in aContinue reading “Life Drawing, 28th January”
Last year I came across this tweet, which challenged me to start thinking differently about how I draw through the week. Most of the time I only draw whatever I feel like, or what I’m working on. Life drawing has been the only regular study I’ve done since school. I pick things up here andContinue reading “Practice, practice, practice”
Sue modelled at the final life drawing session of 2019. It’s hard to believe it’s a new year, let alone a new decade!
Sophie, an acrobat, modelled at life drawing this week and held some unusual poses! I also did some sketching as she warmed up.
David was the model for these sketches.
It’s been about two and a half years since I last updated my drawing portfolio (!) so I thought it was time to give it a refresh. What’s been exciting about putting this one together is that it’s all new – nothing from the last portfolio is still in it. You can take a lookContinue reading “New Portfolio!”
Silvi modelled at this session.
Way back in August, after finishing on Klaus (I’m hoping to post more about my work on that soon), I took a day to visit Edinburgh Zoo. Thankfully the weather was pretty good and I was able to see, and draw, a lot of animals.
The first life drawing session of November was modelled by Zaneta.
I’ve got behind with uploading my sketches from life drawing again … I’ll upload them soon! These drawings are from late October, modelled by Lydia.
Maxime was the model on Tuesday. It was great to be at life drawing again; it’s been a long time.
I missed a session because of work, but was back at life drawing last week where Imogen modelled.
It’s been a while since I uploaded any sketches from life drawing … here are some from sessions modelled by Maxime, Lena, Evie, and Susan.
Sketches of Bea from last week. Even after a relatively short break from life drawing I struggled to get back into it! There are an awful lot of drawings that won’t see the light of day again. However here are a few sketches I am happy with. I particularly enjoyed drawing the study of Bea’sContinue reading “Life Drawing, 12th March”
Here are some more drawings from earlier in the month, with Debbie modelling.
Susannah modelled at the final January session. Lots of nice poses, but my drawings were a bit hit and miss.
