Catching the Lark & Dark
During this mornings 'Life Drawing' we were told to prioritize on the tonal ranges that were featured in and around our model, Jane. Therefore we began with a warm up.
- This was my 5 minute pose exercise. I used the side of a lighter grey charcoal to get a broader range of textured light and dark.
- The next task was a 20 minute 'tone' drawing and this time I had my own putty rubber with me to help pick out the light on Jane's skin. We were not allowed to use any line art until the last 10 minutes.
- Next, was very quick 1 minute poses. I tried to not use line art till last on this exercise. I really enjoyed the quick paced lines as they are very suggestive.
- For our last pose, we had to sketch only using continuous line. I did this within 10 minutes, and then the last 10 were used using the side of the black charcoal.
