This week's life drawing was on "Different Leg Poses", and we got to draw the lady again today which was a nice change! I am surprisingly happy with the drawings this week especially 'cause I really felt like I was struggling to get started on a lot of the sketches. I got there in the end though. Reinhard was commenting that he's noticing we aren't being as pernickety with detail as we once were, and this was exactly what I was thinking when I was drawing. I've bought myself some new "thin" willow charcoal (lies! They're as thick as my thumb. Big, stupid, cumbersome things) and I was finding myself giving up on the finer details and trying to keep my drawing clean. I like it, and I'm really happy with the end results.
The timing for all the poses are beside each picture, most were 10 minute, but a couple were different (the chair and kneeling poses). All were drawn using FAT willow charcoal.
