Life Drawing, week 4

May 22, 2012

Worked on one simple idea last week – first, using a cheap calligraphy brush and light ink wash, mark the important lines of the model with no more than two lines. Done quickly and in one move as an immediate response to the overall expression of the pose. Then draw lines over or around this. I used a stick for the lines but it could also be done with a nib.

These were quick sketches, either one or two minutes, can’t remember.

I think the above was five minutes. There are parts of it I don’t like, but I do like the overall feel.
