Thursday Life Drawing was a wonderful session moderated and setup by Diane Olivier.
A segment of one and two minute poses to start with is always nice. It’s a great warmup and when a session doesn’t start with short poses like this, I miss them all session long. I suppose it’s like running a race without warming up. Plus, all the most dynamic poses happen in this sessions.
Two ten minute poses, after the model had a break , while we “went around” the zoom-room, each person showing one single page of their sketches.
And my last sketches of the session.
I feel a need to push the movement in the poses even further than I usually do. It must be so hard for the models to work with the small spaces and lighting wherever they are sheltering in place. And to top it off, there is the narrow vertical format of the phone screen to fit their poses inside. So I like to imagine how they’d push those poses if they had more space. Our model today was Aaron Bogan and it was so great to draw him!
