Drawing for the Sake of Drawing
After a long break between semesters, our life drawing sessions started up again today. We had a great model, and since I was late, I took the odd back space behind the lights. It turned out to be a wonderful spot, I got some great poses, and worked in my Raffine sketchbook (which is terrific). I have tried using gesture and mass drawing, but I seem to return again and again to contour drawing. It seems the most intimate to me, touching all those wonderful lines with your pencil, and if you don't get it right, you just make a new line. There wasn't enough time for shading, so it's just pencil and line, 15 minute poses. It felt soooo good to just draw again. Thanks for looking.
