Life Drawings

Feb 2015

I’ve not been to the Life Classes for a while so I attended a session at Waterloo this week. Two great models and a relaxed pace.

Plenty of 2 & 5 minute poses. One 20 minute pose at the end. The model liked it and took a photo. I think I can do better. There were a couple of 5 minute poses that went well.

I’ve begun to add colour to my life drawings when there is a longer sitting. I’m trying new watercolour supplies and using the waterbrush that I love. Here are some of my more recent drawings:

I attended a Life class last night. It was a busy class and a lot of new people. The model was really good and I enjoyed drawing her.

Since my sketchbook is full of drawings of  buildings I have been asked if I can draw people.

Once a month I attend a London Drawing life class. I love the variety of the models and the atmosphere of  total concentration there. Most of all it’s to solve the puzzle of the shape in front of me. With poses lasting from 2 minutes to half an hour there are many challenges of shape, tone and texture.

I’ll leave it up to you to decide if I can draw people with these example drawings…

  1. Well Hugh you most certainly can draw and what I most like is you draw people with character all sizes and shapes that’s an artist the beauty of nature. Loved them sketches.
