A bit more gesture

Something I don't do enough is quick gesture drawings... 30 seconds, 1 mins, 5 mins... I started my drawing session today with that. It's like a sprint during a workout! Below, 1 min, 5 mins, and 30 mins...!

Week 2

This week we took a closer look at line quality and how it can help in showing volume and weight. I feel more and more confident with the pencil, but I'm looking forward to experiment more with expressing  what a pose says with better line... still need to work on proportions and keep the gesture alive!

Back to school!

Class 3 of Figure Drawing at Studio Technique started today! I think I'm going to love this class the most. I can feel the difference in my life drawing now that I have a better idea about what's happening under the skin...Don't get me wrong, I am not done learning about bones and muscles, especially how they connect. However, I have a better idea of what those bumps in a silhouette are. Looking forward to the next 9 weeks of figure drawing! The first three drawings are 10 mins, the last one was about 25-30 mins.

Happy 2014!

Happy New Year! Next week, I start a third class with Studio Technique. Looking forward to a new term with Samanthat Youssef's teaching! Meanwhile, even if there is always room for more practice, I'm glad I picked up the pencil between the two classes.

Wishing everybody a wonderful year 2014, full of inspiration and creativity!
