Saturday’s life drawing

The model’s name is Rosa, I’ve been drawing her since I began life drawing which was back in 2011. I know all her poses, her curves and every muscle on her stocky frame because I have sketched her countless times. She used to be a circus performer I have heard, she is 60 years old –  she is young for her age.

Tuesday’s Life Drawing

Location: Konstnärshuset, Stockholm

These days I am very focused on capturing the contour of the figures I draw, I want to improve my ability to judge distance at speed, shading is secondary but enjoyable if time permits.

Pen and wash life drawing sketches

My pen and wash life drawing sketches are improving… At least that’s how it feels to me! 🙂

Saturday’s life drawing

I regularly sketch at Basis on Folkungagatan here in Stockholm. It’s only ten minutes from my home and the 12 o’clock start on a Saturday morning is just perfect for me. The atmosphere is very relaxed and one gets a little tuition for the 100 kronor one pays which is not bad at all. The life drawing session is two hours long.

Life drawing season returns

Yesterday, I went to my first Life Drawing evening since the summer break, I tried out some new techniques I had been studying, if it were a cake it would not have raised, but it was fun trying and that’s the whole point, isn’t it! 😉 Visit “My Life Drawing 2012” if you would like to see more.

Life drawing and watercolour sketch

I completed this watercolour today but really I painted 99% of it last Thursday at my life drawing class. The pose was two hours long with a break for the model every twenty minutes. Click here to see more of my watercolours.

Tuesday’s life Drawing session

It is hard speed-sketching with watercolours – but it’s fun!
