Multi moves life drawing

Multi moves

The usual once a term life class led to some very non-me products.

The model that came was the same young lady that modelled for the two day workshop that I attended about a month ago. Back then I made her look like this. Now I made her look like this ... and like this. It is incredible the difference that the teacher can make. I showed our teacher a photo the drawing from last time and he said I could have done one like that if I had wanted to but I don't think so ... he doesn't give us time.

To get this picture he had the model keep her feet in the same place on the stage but she had to chnage her body position every minute for each of twelve minutes. I used different coloured inks, charcoal and graphite as I worked.

I think that it's interesting but it is so uinlike my usual that I am not really sure.

I like it! Fun to do I imagine... Could draw animals that way perhaps?

Hugs from Liverpool, where the garden is coming on nicely! Lots of new plants from London, plus have sowed loads of seeds, though am still waiting for some to start...

Looks fantastic Robyn. I have occasionally had the opportunity to draw the slow progress of a model very swiftly. Such a fun challenge. Who is your teacher? And who was the workshop teacher? (If you don't mind me asking!) Great work!

My art class teacher is a young man named Mark Naylor. The workshop was led by an older gentleman, Linley Davis. Both very talented but with very different approaches. It is interesting to have such different points of view on a subject.
