This time you will draw a sequence of six different poses, lasting ten minutes each. Adjust the light so that it hits just one side of the model, to emphasise the three-dimensional form…
In fact I only managed four fifteen minute drawings. As with the previous exercise, I had problems with the proportion of the head with the first two drawings.
Check and log:
Were you able to maintain a focus on proportion at the same time as creating a sense of weight and three-dimensional form?
The problem with the size of the head in three of the drawings gives an emphatic ‘No’ to this.
Which drawing gives the best sense of the pose and why?
Even though it is the simplest pose, I like the final standing one above. It feels as if Sandra is solid with her weight even between her feet.
Was there any movement or gesture away from the model’s central axis?
No. It wasn’t asked for in the instructions.
