I haven't been life drawing in 8 months or so. I feel a bit rusty, but here are the results. I have been using a chunky graphite pencil recently and I think I wasn't used to it for life drawing, but I'll stick with it because it's a great material.

The last one of the year. I'll be doing some music stuff over the next week and Christmas is looming so I won't be life drawing until the new year.
In the meantime enjoy this week's scribblings and check back in the new year for more!

An interesting session this evening. The project I am doing is themed around 'activities of the everyday'. I was starting to think about narrowing this down to eating and sleeping. Low and behold, this evening's life model poses as though asleep. I am definitely going to have to work these drawings into something about sleeping habits!
This is a page of 1 minute gesture drawings...minus the watercolours. I did those afterwards!

Been a couple of weeks since the last life drawing session. This week was another challenging week. After drawing more women than men, it was good to be drawing another male model.
The next piece is part of my MA work where I am experimenting with storytelling. I am also looking at the difference between observation drawing and drawing from imagination. In this page, I am going to see what happens when I place an imaginary drawing in the blank panels in between the observational drawings. Try to build a plot in this page.
