The way you portray the light falling on the figure has me studying these closely, Rob. You had some tricky poses, but your proportions are spot-on as usual- envious I am!

Aah the power of foreshortening - ok I'm not 100% sure what I mean by that but these are quite nice ! Hopefully you were not at risk of not drawing breath recently sir!

Where's the rust then, Rob? As I scrolled down, they just kept getting better and better!

Re: Still Drawing Breath in London

Thank you! I did actually drop back into drawing more easily tha after previous breaks. The sessions are held in a domestic living room with very restrained lighting which has good and bad points. I do sometimes yearn for 3 point light which gives those gorgeous descriptive terminators between light and dark. I occasionally try to fake the effect with mixed results, but best to just stick to what your eyes tell you I think.
Rob

Ah Rob it looks like London is breathing well, and that a Living Room is a great natural location for Life Drawing... decisive drawing, good choices and a very rewarding outcome

Re: Still Drawing Breath in London

Good stuff, Rob! Surely not rusty. #5,#6 and #7 really show how quickly you got back in the groove. I think in the first one, the highlights in the background overshadow the model's presence some, otherwise, they are all fantastic studies.
