HAS Feb 2010 Life Drawing

Nice pose, pity she is all out of proportion! I shall likely work on this, or a new one.

I like this one.

This is about the third time I have been presented with this view, and my interpretation gets worse with practice!

Don't know why I decapitated her, but I like this.

A bit clumsy with the charcoal here.

I like this, drawn with Ken Paines' teaching in mind.

My favourite drawing of the day, her rosebud lips have an irrisistible appeal.
Fabulous day, although I'm not sure I accomplished a great deal. The main drawback was because I took acrylics. I have been working in oils for the past year, which are completely different, and found I had lost the know how with acrylics for figurative work.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed the day, with fantastic models, and wonderful friends to chit chat with.

Done In 20" x 16" Charcoal

I have missed the life drawing, but the good news is that I hope to go again at the end of February. Only a couple of weeks.
In the mean time here is a drawing today from a photo taken at one of the HAS sessions. Not quite the same, I know, but I enjoyed it.
