Life Drawing Marathon

posted in: Artwork, Sketches | 0

There is nothing like live figure drawing to bring some energy and movement back into your sketches. I took a weekend figure-drawing marathon class at the Delaplaine and it was wonderful! We worked on paper that was about 4′ x 4′. I haven’t worked that large in quite a while and it was a really nice, very freeing change. We started off with really quick gestures which we’d shortly erase to start again and muddy up the page a little. From there, we settled into a few longer poses.

I should have taken a couple pictures of the short gestures, but alas, I’ll remember to do that next time (I’ve already signed up for the next marathon in mid May.) Anyway, here are a few photos of my drawings from the longer poses.
