Figure Drawing Practice
I missed live figure drawing this month, but did a little practice anyway during quiet evenings. I set the timer on posemaniacs.com for 90 sec and then sketched quickly to get a basic shape drawn with a watercolor pencil during that time. These are a few that I did.
Portraits are still difficult for me - so I practice quick sketches on the bus or subway and when desperate for a model I sketch half a face from a photo. I cut a face photo in half and then draw exacty what I see in the photo to complete the face. I don't remember where I read about this xercise, but it's fun.
