Open Model Session 1

Participated in my first open model session yesterday morning and got in 2hrs of sketching. I only did the 1 min gestures but I had the chance to draw both male and female forms. Good fun! Oddly enough they both wore their hair in a bun...

I am going to work on gaining confidence back into my line quality. I feel I still spend to much time going back and fourth between the model and my paper. I will be training myself to draw the poses from memory so I can concentrate more of the image in my head rather than referencing the life model.

We are reading Vilppu Drawing Manual which discusses this technique for anyone interested.
