Life Drawing

30 minute pose

We had a fabulous model at the drawing session who is really experienced in poses. This one looks easy (or maybe not) but the foreshortening isn't, at least for me. The length and angle of the legs were a real challenge, as was the arm. Hands, arg! I am going to have to really practice drawing hands, my major weakness. 30 minutes isn't very long pose and it takes this length of time just to get the basic form down on paper.

I worked with my left hand also which is supposed to help improve drawing skills.

I am hoping the phrase "practice makes perfect" works.
