Today was the first day of the new session of life drawing at the NV Museum of Art with instructor Martha Voyevidka. The timing of this class is perfect as I really feel the need to work on drawing skills. Tom was the model and he is just wonderful at holding his pose and resuming the exact same positon after a break. The challenge of foreshortening always attracts me so I set up at his feet in order to take advantage of this pose to have some fun with perspective. This was about 40 minutes on white paper with an ebony pencil.
Seated Tom - another 40 minute drawing in ebony pencil and finally.........
20 minute sketch - cropped.
I adore life drawing and wish that the sessions were year round. This class is only once a week for six weeks and I already know I will miss one session as I have some travel plans - but I believe that every minute one can spend drawing the human figure from life is time exceptionally well spent. A good day for me today! :) Thanks for looking!
