Here are a few charcoal life drawings from my latest class. There was a varied selection of time limits, from quick 2minute poses where you capture the essence of the pose as effectively as you can (top left) to a longer 45min one (bottom right) where you can really begin to work on perfecting you drawing and focus on shading.
For those of you who are interested, I go to life drawing classes at the Candid Arts Centre (a trust for promoting the arts and arts education), a buzzing, sprawling, varied and friendly little place behind Angel tube station in, Islington, London. They have 2hour drop in classes every Monday – Thursday, from 7-9pm, for only £7 – a real bargain, see you there! x
