Life Drawing – Week 1

This weeks life drawing focused more on the overall form. To capture this Michael suggested using s and c curves, focusing more on thicker rough impressionist strokes using our conte chalk, rather than thinner outlines. My life drawing is still off at this point, especially my for-shortening; this skill needs so much more work.

For the drawing below we focused on drawing the stool in perspective for 5 minutes and then spent 10-15 minutes drawing the female model sitting in it. My drawing is quite lifeless and the proportions of the legs and feet are especially off.
