Todays session started with six 4 minute drawings with brush pens, I found this quite difficult to get the whole body drawn in the time, and the positions were quite difficult to draw, but I am a lot more committed to a drawing, I just dive straight in especially in the quick drawings. My line work is improving the more I do, its a lot less sketchy. However my proportions still need a lot of work.
After doing the quick drawings, we moved onto painting, for each painting we had 15 minutes, I enjoyed getting add the colour however I found it quite difficult to paint the faces (especially adding detail), this is something that I need to practice a lot more so that I can get better. Working with paint you get to create your own style especially when looking at clothes as it is how you see a garment, it was interesting looking around at everyone elses paintings, as they were all very different.
Overall I am pleased with how I got on in today's session as I can see a lot of improvement compared to my first session.
