Model Anna Catherine, has been Lautrec-inspired this week. Which made for a really fun sketching session. Anna has got this online-posing thing down: since you’re limited by what you can see in video, it helps if the poses have cleaner silhouettes to explain them and are more open. Also, some visual drama with the camera angle and with things pushing forward in space helps and Anna gets that. All this besides being really nice and very friendly.
If you haven’t attended a virtual life-drawing session, give it a try. If you’ve wondered if it’s any different from drawing from photos, it is, and I have a hard time articulating why… If you’ve attended one, maybe you can say it better in words than I can?
