Life Drawing

A few weeks ago I went to four life drawing sessions. I had done some life drawing in first year, where we focussed more on mark making and the actual backgrounds we were drawing onto (which I really enjoyed) but this time it was more about making an image, and really looking at the model to create an informed and realistic interpretation of the model.

I really enjoyed working at an easel again, and drawing something which wasn’t a plant or animal (which my practice really centres around). Here are some of the drawings I made over several sessions. At the time I was quite pleased with them but looking at them now I can see lots of mistakes (mostly with leg proportion and a tendency to avoid details on hands and feet), so in the future I may revisit these drawings and improve them.
