Short Pose Studies.

This week at life drawing the model switched between 30 second, 2 minute, 5 minute, and 30 minute pose sessions.

I'd drawn 5 minute poses before, but I'd never actually drawn at this rate, so my first drawings are very unfinished because I didn't realise quite how short 30 seconds actually was.

But as I progressed through the class I got a better grasp on the situation, and began adopting quick, "swooshy" pencil strokes which allowed me to convey the pose of the model, as opposed to focusing on little details.

This was probably the most helpful and fruitful life drawing class I've ever taken part in, because I could see a clear improvement from before and after.
