Life Drawing - Figure Study

Caitlin Graphite Sketch
I have not be able to make it out to Suite E Life Drawing sessions much the past month or so due to other commitments (I know, what on earth could possibly be more important than life drawing!?!?) so I was so happy to make it out last night to draw my favorite model, Caitlin.

The session flew by very quickly as they often do but I was quite happy with the end result despite having forgotten to do any measurements with my trusty skewer as I have been practicing at home.  I don't know why but every time I tell myself I am going to take the time to measure....and I always end up jumping in...next time...for sure ;)

Only one more life drawing session before I get to spend two full days portrait drawing from life with Noah Layne.  He has one spot left in his two day workshop so if you are in the area and want to attend please let me know.  I can hardly wait!

Drawing from Life Workshop - April 27 & 28, 2013

Graphite Pencil Cast Study - 11x14"
This workshop will provide you with the skills needed for creating realistic three dimensional drawings from life using graphite pencil.

We will use several time tested methods to progress from drawing a 2 dimensional image accurately and then progress to drawing a three dimensional image from life using casts and still life objections.

Each different technique will be covered in a demo followed by studio time to practice the techniques with one on one instruction. No previous drawing skills required. This course is suitable for beginner and intermediate artists. Supply list available after registration.
