On Fridays after work the drawing school run a Drink and Draw session. It’s a nice idea to do some more informal drawing before the weekend, maybe with a friend or two. However, I found it a bit too busy and hard to focus as the normal silence of the drawing studio was broken by a little chatter. At least that’s my excuse!
Anyway here’s how I got on.
Quick poses to start, all 2 minutes. A couple of these I was pretty pleased with, they capture the form, but feel free and have some energy to them.
Then a longer pose, I think around 15-20 minutes. The first one I’m not so into as it’s heavy and I can see that I struggled. It’s kind of flat, although I do like the line that runs down the back to the hip.
The second I prefer although it’s far from perfect.
A quick diversion into red chalk..
Then finally the long pose which is my least favourite. I tend to work reasonably fast and so I struggle a bit with overworking these ones.
