Here is a longer figure drawing - about three hours. That seems like it should be a lot of time, but it goes by so quickly!

I'm not enrolled in a class this summer, but I am going to be attending a weekly life drawing session at PAFA. Since I haven't taken a life drawing class at the Academy, I feel pretty clueless, but I'm trying to apply some of the techniques I learned in my cast drawing class and muddle through. Here is a relatively short sketch (30 or 40 minutes) of Stephanie.

I am taking a cast drawing class at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. The cast hall is full of beautiful sculptures, mostly copies of Greek and Roman figures. For at least the past couple of centuries now, art students have been dutifully drawing them in charcoal to improve their technique in representing proportion and form. It has been a fun, challenging, educational experience so far. I'll post some images along the way. Here is one I did the second or third class.
