Life










Since my recent life drawings I've been grabbing every opportunity I can to work from the life model. I'm concentrating on quick poses, lasting only a few minutes.

This enables the model to adopt more challenging poses - twisting or leaning - which would be difficult and painful to sustain for long.

Here are two drawings I sketched from two different models, along with photographs.

I haven't worked from these photographs, but I find them both inspiring - and useful for visual reference.
