Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Last night's figure group 14th May

The new term has finally started although it will probably be for only 4 weeks as exams at the Univeristy where it operates take over. It seems a long time since I drew live and its always a challenge, and so much different from using photos or croquis video. The model was the skinny young man who we have drawn a few times and he works very hard to provide us with varied poses. My one minute poses were a disaster but one 2 minute pose just flowed. The second didnt flow at all and it shows how much the brain needs to connect to hand before we can get decent results. i've sorted the wheat from the chaff and am posting the best of the bunch...


2 minutes, the good one...


The rest are 10 minutes...

Those last two look like you were getting it all to come together, David!

Thanks bethany. These one hour sessions are torture. Just as you start to get there, times up - but it certainly concentrates the mind

Re: Last night's figure group 14th May

The shapes are good particularly in the last two David. One hour doesn't sound very long for the whole session. All the sessions I attend start with quick poses and end up with long ones. It would be good to have this the other way round to see if better looking led to more freedom in the shorter poses.

I really like all three of those from the back. Image number three is very expressive.

Thanks Nathan. I've taken a new approach to the one minute and short poses as you'll hopefully see from my next post. I can see little point in putting down a line that is obviously wrong just to get some kind of shape on the paper. Gesture poses very rarely seem to link to the actual model but are often very generic to show the tension or action. That's not a bad thing of course if it's all you are aiming for. I would rather put down fewer lines which show something of the model in front of me. I could of course be totally wrong on this, maybe it's worth putting a post up about gestures

The last two show a pretty well connected brain I think.....
