Today’s life drawing session was all about portraiture. I have tried to avoid drawing faces until today, where we had to focus on the face. To start with I had no idea where to begin but once I got into it I felt a lot more confident in starting. it was recommended that we start with the eyes and work from there. To start we were just drawing the head but we then moved onto the body as well.
In the second half of the session we were still focusing on the face but including the body as well, we had a bit longer for these, the first two we had 12 minutes and for the last one we had just under an hour, for this one I used pencil and white chalk, I used the chalk to highlight where the light was hitting the body, I really wish that I had more time on this one so that I could finish it. Overall, I am really pleased with the progress I made in this session and I feel a lot happier with drawing faces now, I am going to keep practising so that I can keep improving.
