|Model Drawing - work in progress|
Today I went to the first class of the Life Drawing session, and this is a two week pose, which means the model will come back next week and she'll sit in the same exact pose, wearing the same expression. So I'll have the opportunity to finish this drawing next week.
|Preliminary sketch of model done in about 30 minutes.|
In three hours we usually get three, max four periods of posing, which is not a lot, really.
In the first period I did a preliminary sketch, to get my hands warm after a long time without drawing models, and to test the lines of the composition.
Then I started the drawing using a medium new to me: charcoal vines. I wasn't sure how I liked it, because it's so soft and gets dark pretty quickly, but I really enjoyed drawing with charcoal vines!
There is still quite a bit to do on the drawing, I'm looking forward to next week's session!
