My first life drawing class at Gage Academy today. It was really great, I plan on sighing up for 20 classes, it was that good.
The Gage open studio on Sunday is a long pose open studio, one pose for the whole class. I didn’t feel like working on the same drawing for three hours so I did a bunch of starts. I feel like the start of a drawing is the most important, if you get that correct, with proportions and accuracy, then the rest is embellishments. So, almost every 20 minute break I started a new drawing. I have to say that the 20 minutes for each drawing went by really quickly.
I need to work on portraits at some point also, I noticed that even though this is the same person in each drawing the face look different each time. Maybe in my next class I will just focus on the face.
