Drawing the Head: Week Two

Life Drawing May 17, 2015

Another week of life drawing. I forgot all my equipment so I just worked in the charcoal supplied by the school.

We started with a few five minute poses and I was a bit rusty as I’d missed a week. Here’s one (the others were terrible and on such flimsy paper I jettisoned them). I quite like this one although in terms of likeness it’s not really that close.

And then we had a longer one hour pose. I often rush through this and finish way before the end and spend time tinkering or trying some other angles on fresh drawings.  This week I took my time and worked more methodically.

Looking at it now some of the light and dark seems out of balance, but it was actually a reasonable likeness so that’s something!
