Last night I began my figure unit with our wonderful model Dorothy. Many of my students have never drawn the model from life before, so this was a new and somewhat terrifying experience. These are a couple of my 3-5 minute pose drawings. They are 18 x 25" in size, and done in charcoal. I am quite rusty as I have not drawn the figure from life myself since this time last year. I am excited to see what new skills I bring to the task this time around.
