A great afternoon life drawing yesterday in an A3 sketchpad
None are 'finished' pieces and all drawn FAST! so errors, things that need correcting etc but great practice
I do like the freshness of having to work fast. Tony's classes are advanced and are designed to make you think around ways of working/markmaking/what it is you are aiming to catch - he does a couple each year for a group I belong to. They are never aimed at a long pose with a finished piece at the end.
The double pose was the last one - not a mirror, just the model turning but keeping the same pose.
The one with 4 poses was literally seconds
for each and we had to catch the figure in 6 lines - then I was allowed to work into it (the colour). It was about catching attitudes.
One manages to make her look a little emaciated! I overdid the shadows on the creases of the flesh on her torso as she twisted. Rushing to get it done in the time limit.
The linear one was drawing with the pencil attached to a 3 foot cane.
the warm up exercise was with closed eyes, left hand touching our face and drawing what we felt - fun
