Today, we had one of our better models. There were less people than normal but it was a great day for drawing.

I missed the last two life drawing workshops but I tried to make up for it by going to Croquis Cafe on YouTube to draw from their models. The poses are actually timed. There are 1 minute poses, 2 minute poses, and then a final 5 minute pose. It’s pretty close to actually being there.
However, I was able to go today and draw live at the Sunday workshop at our local university. It beats drawing from a computer monitor.
Below are a couple of 2 minute warm up poses drawn with sumi ink, brush, and wooden chopstick.
This is a 20 minute pose drawn with the aux deux crayon style.

Today we had the tattooed model. It seemed like she had new tattoos added since the last time I saw her.
Although I got got a couple of poses with her back to me there were a couple of poses where I was able to draw her face. It was hard to capture the general look and feel of her but I think that’s how it is with certain models.
Below are two 20-minute charcoal drawing in black and white on toned paper.

I like drawing this particular model. I think someone said he studies classical poses and uses them when he models for a life drawing class. For some reason his looks reminds me of Van Gogh. A woman next to me said he reminds her of paintings of satyrs. But we both agree that his mustache is very interesting.

Today’s model is one of my favorites to draw. He’s not muscular but he’s large boned with angular, well defined surface areas. You don’t have that smooth roundness that you see in a lot of female models so he has more interesting surface areas to work with.
Below are two, twenty minute drawings in the aux deux crayons (two chalks) style.

Today’s drawings at the Sunday life drawing workshop. For some reason I always seem to have a little difficulty getting a good likeness of this model. Oh well, I just need more practice, I guess.
