Life Drawing - 3

Today i drew with charcoal and pastels in life drawing. I started with quick charcoal gesture drawings of the figure, which were very easy but not very successful (the proportions were very bad). Afterwards, I focused on one part of the body and drew it in pastel. I drew several (5) of these, and I felt that this was very successful, and I also found the body much easier to draw this way. I liked using the Buff paper more than the Black, and I would really like to work with pastels again.

Life Drawing - 1

This week was my first week in life drawing at college. I've always wanted to take a class, but have never found the time or anywhere to do it. Here are my attempts from the first class, from the first to the last. I am proud that I can see an improvement in these.
