First of all we started off doing a drawing which lasted 1 minute and then went round the class and added to others drawings until we reached back to ours. Mine wasn't too hard to work with but it seemed that one of the manichans had been doubled up but I did like the effect of it.
After this we turned our easels facing away from the manichans and draw from observation without looking at the display. This was really hard and strange and I didn't really like the outcome too much as I wish I had used different strokes of the charcoal.
Lastly we had 3 different people from class model for us in 20 minute sections.
First up was Johnny where i got tied up on drawing his face and ran out of time and also he doesn't have an afro I just run out of time before being able to shape his hair.
Secondly we did a drawing of Paul which unfortunately I did'nt get on to one page but overall I feel I am becoming much more confident with life drawing and figures.
And lastly we drew a 2nd year student. This pose I did find difficult to draw with the arms being behind the head so I had to draw the fingers which actually didn't turn out too bad. Even though we didn't draw a nude model I thought this was good practice in drawing clothes around models.
