Drawing the Head

Life Drawing May 2, 2015

It’s a new term and I have switched group at The Royal Drawing School to one that is focussing on the head rather than the whole form.

Drawing the figure is hard and I think drawing the face is the hardest part (followed by hands and then feet in that order!) mainly because I know I over think that part. I forget to just relax and draw what I see rather than try to make it look ‘right’.

So how did week one go? OK.

We started with some quick poses, 10 and 15 minutes.

And the moved onto some longer poses. I tried not to worry about likeness too much but focus on structure, light and shadow and hope that some sort of likeness would be a side product of that. Kind of worked.
