Life Drawing 29/11/11

This weeks life drawing was pretty successful in terms of loosening up. We were focusing on using areas of tone and value to create our drawings, so I forced myself to focus on these areas by keeping my glasses off for the entire session. It really works! Thanks to my naturally, insanely blurred vision, I couldn't help but see blobs of tone. As for loosening up, I just scribbled and scribbled and scribbled. I was way more relaxed than usual, and I didn't really care if it was misshapen or out of proportion because the creative mayhem was good fun. Hopefully this less uptight approach will find its way into my typical working process and I can get on the way to creating something genuinely interesting!

  1. Haha that's a great idea! It's soo worked too, go back to one of your past life drawing sessions and compare seriously this one has lots more energy! Proportion wise I can't see anything obviously 'misshapen' :)
