Life Drawing: Session 1

Yesterday, we had our first life drawing session, since i had life drawing before it was easier for me to overcome the aspect of restricted type of drawings and go for a more freedom apporach. Even though I'm not fully sastified with the first 2 drawings.

10 mins.
10 mins.

I found that I drew in a restrained way not letting the lines free and embrace what i was seeing, but was good for the 1st drawings in a 10 mins pose.

After those 2 poses we were advised to look for the lines that interact the human body, e.g. the difference between the shoulders and the hips, etc. so we had 2 exercises using a cubist way to draw the figure, which in my opinion gave me a freedom with the pencil respecting the proportions of the human body, this exercise helped me to explore the angles of different positions of the human body. Very interesting!!

Likewise - I especially like the last drawing - full of energy and 'crackle'!

Thank you! i agree, i like the last two, i think what happened on the first 2 is that i could draw right proportion but that was that still restrain to draw more freely...
