Blundering about in the dark...

Today has been long and disheartening and without studio time.  ;o(  Well, no time in my own studio that is, although I have been at life class this evening so I am sneaking that in as my 30 Days of Get Your Art On time, ssssssh, no one will notice!  ;o) 

This evening's model was the lovely Clifford who I always enjoy drawing and who is always interesting to chat with.  ;o)  We had some great subdued lighting for the class tonight which gave some lovely shadows for tonal work.  Mind you, I confess that my position in the class didn't afford me much light to draw by at all and by the time I'd finished drawing the first two poses I practically had my nose on the paper!  ;oD  So, after some judicious light bulb tinkering I had some light and swiftly whipped my early efforts off the easel and this was my next drawing...


Trust me, it's miles better than it's predecessors!  ;o)  I was relatively happy with this one, I think I'm improving (albeit at a snail's pace) on the shading front.  I remembered the squinting technique to see tonal values this evening and spent alot of time peering out from behind the easel with half closed eyes, goodness only knows what sort of freaky sideshow appearance I have!  lol  After this pose we moved onto a standing pose to finish and I did a more scribbly tonal drawing...


And, no, he wasn't wearing knee pads!  lol  Another area to add to my To Improve On list me thinks...

I still haven't attempted life drawing. In fact, I avidly avoid it, lol!!! Drawing people from photos I can do, sort of, but any time I try to sketch people from life (apart from faces) I fail to achieve anything even remotely reasonable!!! So am in awe of your drawings - keep it up, you're doing SO well x
