Long Pose Studies

Everything added in this last image is my instructor's demo on top of my lay-in.

This week's exercises

The first half of class was spent on standard observational drawing.  My instructor drew the far right arm and inner movement curve seen here, on top of my lay-in.

The rest of these are a series of blind and semi-blind contour drawings.  It's interesting to see what kinds of marks your hand makes when it can only use your eye to measure.  In a way, these types of drawings are much more honest than anything else...

Abstract Figures

The objective with these studies was to create 3-dimensional space using only straight lines.  We were instructed to draw angles and trajectories, but not 'things'.  These are the result and each study was between 10 and 15 minutes.
