Last week was back to life class to start a 10 week course. I managed to coerce most of the art department & half the story crew of 'Arthur Christmas' into joining the class. We were all somewhat rusty but felt good afterwards having made the effort.
This was a terrific pose with interesting shapes but the fore-shortening was problematic. I really failed with that top knee cap & delineating the orientation of the pelvis & insertion of that near thigh.
This model had a natural elegance which I figured may make an interesting drawing but I got caught up in the tonal work & goofed it up.
This older model had a great silhouette in this pose. I was struck by the negative space formed by the love handle & the tension in that arm.
By this last one I was just loosening up but the class was over & we had to leave!
