Life Drawing Class

At my third life drawing class this autumn I felt I have overcome the initial problems of orientation and proportions and find myself where I left off a year ago. Although there are a couple of new aspects, too.

I like to begin with the head and shoulders to get a feel for the pose and work my way down. I tried other approaches – like being all over the paper all the time, or beginning with the feet – but they make me feel disorientated.

Our model this week had a braid. I liked that very much as it helped me to define the inclination of the head and the shape of the shoulders.
