April Figure Drawing

I love going to figure drawing - and could go twice a week to Society of Illustrators.  But I still only go once/month, just trying to keep some balance in my life. 

The figure drawing sessions that I attend have 10 two minute poses, 4 five minute poses, 2 ten minute poses and 3 twenty minute poses

These are the three 20 minute poses - all drawn with a watercolor pencil and then wet with water to shade the figures during the last few minutes.   Ultimately I would love to draw with a brush and paint, and I'm hoping that this will be good practice for that next step.  I was thrilled that I could draw the back of the model for two poses out of the three, because I'm always disappointed after adding facial features.






You are getting to be so good at this! I always love your figure drawings. When I get a chance, I'll scan and email you my latest effort. lol.

You're so good at getting all the proportions right (my challenge). Your ladies look like lovely Greek statues.

Well done ! Excellent rendition of the attitudes!

Something I'd love to do, I like the middle one best!

Yeah! they are so good. The figures and the technique are right on.

I so enjoy visiting your blog - and it has been way too long since I stopped by! I LOVE the fountain sketch. You should do more landscape sketches! And your figure drawings are wonderful.

These are fantastic!! All of your practice really shows.

I saw your post at The Art Journal. I love your work and I'm enjoying Roz Stendahl's classes at Strathmore, too. I just can't draw or sketch like you can.
