Life Drawing: Back on the donkey!

May 28, 2018

No, not this kind of donkey!

 

 This kind of art bench-casually referred to as a 'donkey' for obvious reasons.  Although these benches are mega uncomfortable on the backside, they are really good for drawing when used with a drawing board.

Even Walt Disney had his artists using them, so it has to be a good idea! Although these guys haven't quite caught on how to use them properly!

 

 

After a few weeks break it's back to the Friday night life drawing class. Each week there is a 3 hour class - the first hour is normally quick gestures - 30 seconds, 1 minute, 3 minute poses. Then a mid-level pose for around 30 minutes and the last hour is a long pose for around an hour. the models change every few weeks - and can be male or female.

 

Here are some 30 second poses that I did from class. I find gesture drawings really hard still, so I hope to get better by practising them more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'll be talking more about gesture drawing in another post.
