Figure Drawing Funness 2
Posted By :Date :Laura | 05-08-2015
Draw­ings from my last fig­ure draw­ing ses­sion — Again, a great model with a great figure and sense of expression. As usual, we started out with fast poses for ges­ture draw­ing, and then the last hour and a half we had just one pose. I decided to do a portrait for the last session, but I feel like the final piece is too unfinished, and I didn't take quite enough time in the measuring stages.

I got to attend a figure drawing session at 171 Cedar! I've been dying to get some life drawing into my schedule and this open session-style class will be perfect for brushing up on my life drawing skills. These aren't nearly as bad as I've been expecting since I haven't drawn from a live figure in about 4 years, (whaaat?!) but these were still the only two from the 2 hour session that I felt like posting. I'm definitely not moving as fast as I used to or as accurately,…

I have been craving oil painting lately, and to that end, I have been experimenting with creating illustrative work in oils, along side my digital painting. Here are my first two illustrative oils, they are really more like small studies, but they were surprisingly fun!

Traditional drawing

So, I have recently had a few requests to post examples of my traditional work. There's a lot of it, but I thought I would start with some of my charcoal drawings. Enjoy!         [gallery ids="587,589,584,590,588,586,585"]
