Life drawing 8.-9.2.2019

This was my first time doing any kind of life drawing. It was very interesting to concentrate on viewing the forms and how the environment interacts with the model (lights, shadows). The pieces were made using charcoal.

This was also first time in ages to make anything in this huge paper, so it brought an additional challenge to all the measuring. Good tip was to trust the measurements, not the eye. Of course at times measurement could go wrong also but usually what I think I see is not actually true.


First we did a figure drawing with lines and emphasis on the line strength. Latter figure was made with light shading. I totally failed my measurements on the latter piece, got entirely blind to what I am staring.
