Life Drawing Workshop - 5/6/18

At today’s life drawing workshop I came to the realization that I need to wear my eyeglasses when drawing. I didn’t want it to have to come to that but I found myself straining to see the marks I was making on the paper. I guess I have to accept the fact that I’m getting old and my eyesight is not like what it used to be.

But other than that it was a good drawing session. The model had many interesting muscle definition and character that could make a drawing interesting.

Below is my drawing of the day. It was a 20 minute pose but I found the next pose uninteresting so I skipped that and continued working on this drawing for another 20 minutes.

I used graphite pencils (mechanical and wooden) including white highlights on tone paper.
