All the figure drawings (artistically NSFW)

Did you miss my post on The Toast?

I am behind on everything at the moment, or at least it feels like I am, which as far as mood goes is essentially the same thing. By way of catch-up I present to you three weeks of life drawings.

First, the limber and dancerly Jenny. I had drawn her before, five years (!) ago.

Two-minute gesture poses

Five-minute poses

Two attempts at the same pose

My favorite from the evening. 20 minutes and I tried to get a little of the pattern from her skirt (which she was obviously not wearing at the moment).

Another 20.

And Alex, whom I have also drawn before. I find him a particularly energizing presence.

Before he showed up, our instructor, Suzanne, modeled for us briefly. I had a surprisingly hard time drawing someone in clothes. But then, the first poses of a session always are the hardest, anyway.
