Today was the first time I experienced life drawing. It was really good and it's a great way to study anatomy. We started with a long period of time to draw the model to 10 minute drawings, 5 minute, and 30 second drawings. This is the first image I created. Using the easel and such a large piece of paper is something i'm not quite used to, so I feel the proportions are quite off.
A continuous line drawing. Not being able to lift the pencil off the paper did hinder the ability to create good proportions.
I liked the variety of poses the model gave us - these were done in, I believe 1 minute intervals. As the time period shortened, I had to concentrate on getting the fundamentals of the poses.
These were done in 30 second intervals. I don't think I've ever drawn so fast! This was a fun exercise, though.
The last drawing was done in 20 minutes. I feel the head it quite small but I'm quite happy with the outcome.
