Life Drawing Class

I have been doing a life drawing class as part of my course. It is a wonderful experience.  It is great to 1 have the pressure of trying to get an image down in a short amount of time, usually done with a series of 3 min warm up drawings, and 2 to have the opportunity to try a variety of techniques and styles.

Most of my work so far has been done using charcoal. I have gained a whole new appreciation for this medium. It can be very expressive. And fun. Working with line and applying tone in different ways.

Another advantage working from a live model is they can move... while you are drawing... this is a very challenging (frustrating) exercise.

Here are a couple with a conte pencil for something different.
