Life drawing July



I was able to get to another life drawing class. I missed last month and I really want to try and go to these, I feel it really improves my work overall. I am finding that my proportions are becoming more acurate and that I am able to sketch figures a bit better now. Last month I heard it was a big, black man and that he was a bit harder to draw due to his dark skin, harder to see values and details. This month we had a skinny white girl, LOL, she was so tiny I felt as though I was drawing skeletal illustrations. I enjoy a bit more curves and lines, which lend interest to the drawing. Although its good to paint all body styles. She had some beautiful poses and lines, I got two good sketches and then Marta and I snuck out early and went and had dinner at the Mexican resturant in the Mission Inn, so beautiful!! What a fun night!!!

Great sketches. I agree, a fuller figure is so much more sensual to draw, but your skinny model looks wonderful. I like the bottom one especially...what mediums did you use in the top one?

Hi Ronell, thanks for your comments I used a conte and graphite on the top one. I mixed and played with different combinations to see what results I would get.

I really like the second sketch a lot. Something about the line of her spine is very appealing.
