There were three models at this session, because Bill stepped in for the first few minutes as Francesca and Pete were delayed! I tested out a new 10B pencil which was lovely to draw with. I liked being able to easily switch between a soft and sharp line (something I can’t seem to get theContinue reading “Life Drawing, 18th December”
Marta held some interesting poses at this session. Challenging, but good fun.
Morna modelled for our first December session. I was struggling with the conte pastel so did most of the drawings in pencil.
I have been snowed under with a job, Christmas, and a new niece (all very exciting but quite hard work) and that’s meant my life drawing from last year has been put aside until now. First up are drawings of model Gina, from back in November!
Nat and her dog Lapa were wonderful models at last week’s life drawing session. I drew Lapa quite a lot, as you can see below … That’s me caught up!
Some life drawing sketches of Sarah with her cello. I struggled a bit with the conte pastel, so I abandoned it for the pencil. The cello was difficult to draw! I’ve got one more week to catch up on which I’ll post tomorrow.
Some very late sketches, modelled by Susan. I have two more weeks of drawing to post which I’ll upload over the next two days.
The second day back at life drawing I felt more relaxed. Maxime modelled, holding some lovely and difficult poses. I’m still behind with uploading drawings from the 16th, but I’ll try to post those next weekend.
I’m a bit behind with posting my life drawings! The first evening back Clara modelled.
Last week was the last life drawing session before the summer. Susan modelled and held lovely poses with lots going on.
David modelled on Tuesday, holding some incredible poses that were often incredibly challenging to draw! It was a good session.
I went back to conte pastel for last week’s session – I think shaking up the medium every so often helps to keep things fresh! First-time model Silvi held some great poses.
Annie modelled at this week’s session. There were some really wonderful poses, and lots of interesting hands and feet!
Sketches from last week’s life drawing session with Andy posing.
Bren modelled at life drawing on Tuesday. I enjoyed the variety of poses, and even drew part of the room using the mirror in the final drawing.
Mireille modelled at life drawing last night, holding some great twisting and leaning poses. I also enjoyed drawing her hair!
I’ve not made it along to life drawing for a few weeks so I thought I’d better get back into practice with some gestures! I drew these from images at Line of Action, using the 30 and 60 second timers.
Drawings from a couple of weeks ago, with Tamara modelling.
It’s taken me a couple of weeks to put these online! A lovely session with Ana modelling. This time I felt a bit more comfortable using conte pastel to draw.
What with packing up and moving across most of the country and Christmas and New Year, it’s taken me a while to post some of my life drawing sketches from December. Here’s a selection!
