We had a good model at the Sept 27th Art Works Eagan figure drawing session. Nice young man, very enthusiastic about doing a good job for us. We started again with 30 second poses. I am working here on an 18 X 24 newsprint pad, just trying to get the gestures. 30 seconds goes fast:
Then we moved on to longer poses, 2 minutes maybe, I can't remember:
Then a little longer, 5 or 10 minutes:
...and finishing up with a couple 25 minute poses. For these I sat down with a smaller sized sketch pad. As usual, I am not completely happy with how these turned out but this is really like going to the gym for a workout. It is hard work and satisfying exercise.
