Recently I attended two Life Drawing open sessions held by my favorite instructor over at MCC, Gingher Leyendecker. It had been a while since I'd done any Life Drawing.
I've been using Canson Steele Grey paper for life drawing. The paper becomes the middle value and it makes it easier to push dark and light values across it using charcoal and black conte for the darks and blending white conte for the highlights.
I was a little more ambitious for the one above and attempted to do more of the model. But I was late to the open session and got just this far in a little over an hour of drawing. I'm afraid I didn't definitely didn't do justice to our attractive model.
BTW...if you want to learn how to draw I highly recommend Mesa Community College...especially Gingher's Life Drawing and Anatomy classes!! (For as often as I tell folks that...you'd think I was on the payroll : )
Well...that's a quick update...thanks as always for stopping by!!
Feel free to stop by my website....I'll leave the lights on for you!
Bye for now
