We had one of my favorite models today; the one with the 50’s kind of look because of her hairstyle. I really wanted to do a portrait of her but wasn’t able to. But I was pretty happy with my ink sketches and that’s what I have posted today.

It was a nice, full workshop today. Good to see some familiar faces again. The model’s poses were interesting but may have been difficult at times.
My favorite works for today were probably my 2 minute warm-up ink sketches.

Very good model today. Did a couple portrait drawings and I thought the profile drawing came out the best.

I got up early this morning so I could get to the life drawing workshop ahead of others and get a good spot. Plenty of people showed up and there was a little argument about someone reserving seats for others, which is not allowed because it’s on a first come, first served basis.
Overall, I felt good about today’s efforts.
20 minute pose: pastel pencil with white highlights on toned paper
2-minute warm up poses: sumi ink – chopstick pen and brush

We had a model at today’s life drawing workshop whose body type looked a little bit Rubenesque. You can imagine Rubens painting her for one of his large canvases. However, none of us had the skill of Rubens but we tried our best to draw her in our own little ways.
I thought I started off pretty well with my sumi ink sketches of her during the 10 2-minute warm-up poses. But my favorite of the day was a portrait of her done in black and white charcoal on toned paper.
Black and white charcoal on toned paper – 20 minute pose.
Black charcoal on paper – 10 minute pose.
Sumi ink with chopstick pen and washes – 2 minute poses.
