Re: Another torso
Well, my general intention is to practice figures with a lot of quick sketches. So far I've had mixed luck stopping myself. I do have a couple that went quickly, I'll upload them later. They're oil on paper, with a lot of turp. I don't know if that's the usual for figure sketching.
I guess my intention is just to practice and improve.
I agree about the contrast/depth. I tend to see it when I take a pic of the painting.
Even though I've been running long, my usual tendency is to be so plodding, that these are still quick for me. Back in college I had this great drawing class with short sketches of models, and I loved it and thought it worked great for forcing me to quickly draw a good figure. It's been a while and I feel like I've lost that, and I'm trying to get it back.
