Life drawing and sketching




















This week's life drawing is a little different as I concentrated on the model's face.

















The model turned up late so we took it in turns to pose for each other - I'm glad she arrived just before it was my turn! These were very quick, unfinished sketches and I only got the cap of the third but I think they capture something of the subjects and they are quite nice to have.

After doing these it felt natural to concentrate on the model's face. I found myself using an HB so I decided to stay with it rather than having some darker areas drawing attention away. Also, after doing the face and some shading on the body and arm it felt finished but I continued anyway to see if it would look any better. It didn't but no matter, I quite like it. There's nothing wrong with the foot, by the way, it just didn't fit on the scanner!

Very nice....I love what you did with the model's face in the first drawing...you've captured her "lost in thought" feeling wonderfully.

Thanks Ronell! The chin gave me a little trouble, it was a strange angle and I left it in case I made matters worse!
