I finally made it back to life drawing last night for the first time in weeks. Last night’s model was a woman that I’ve drawn before, she’s probably my favourite model to draw. Tracey has the most amazing powerful thighs and beautiful full figure. I really love the way she holds herself and you can just tell that she loves her body. She’s so much fun to draw.
I also experimented a little with my drawings.
I brought my pastels along and had a play with them.
During the one minute poses I had a bit of fun with blind contour drawing.
This one was done with one continuous line. She looks a little stern, but she really wasn’t.
The rest were drawn fairly much the same as I always do.
The more I draw the more I improve. I need to work on my hands and faces though. Today at uni I was talking to a classmate and she told me of how during high school to practice drawing hands she used to look through magazines and draw every hand she could find. I think I might need to give this a go.
