Life Drawing 10/05

Second Art pocket session with Francis. Model this morning Colin. Have drawn Colin before which made drawing easier. Light was soft and diffuse but plenty around to see the model with. Natural light. More into my swing. Stayed with the graphite and charcoal, whilst I re-learn, looking and transcribing the shapes of the body. A series of 10 min poses, then some 3min action poses and then a final 40 min pose. I chose to draw this final pose twice. Preferring the more spontaneous first drawing. Focused on capturing the face of Colin. Caught something of him, but still terrified of faces. Need to keep drawing them – please with the hands and the sense of the the slump/twist Colin had by leaning his head on his hand.
Colin held a series of action poses, hanging, shooting and skiing which were exciting to draw. Brought some better quality paper along, which ran out before the two final drawings but was better to work with. Mental note to self to look out more buy/more before next week.
