Study in line and form

Figure drawing study

Lately, have attempted to use line to model form. Finding it harder to than expected. It’s always easier to fall back to old habits and the safety of what you know.

My bag and I are the hottest thing ever, except maybe my shoes. My hair – that’s pretty cool too. Unusual, without being overstated. That’s what I said to the hairdresser – he’s very good, I’ll go there again. The bag though, sets it all off. No? What would you know about fashion anyway?

I don’t know if she was day-dreaming or trying to stare me down. Hopefully it was the former and not the latter…

The model didn’t show up for life-drawing, so the participants became the models. This is one of my personal favourites. There’s something very relaxed about this lady.

Brush and ink figure drawing. Drawing with a brush is great because it helps to ‘loosen up’ and for me, introduce some colour. This one got away from me and became a bit difficult to ‘read’. Still, there’s something in it. One for the ‘ideas’ category. Will revisit someday. This was intended to be ‘fast’ and ‘energetic’ and maybe even a bit ‘furious’ (no real reason for the latter). It certainly has some of that but perhaps spilled over into ‘loose’?
