Looking back at my life drawing and other figurative drawing so far, the correct representation of the model’s proportions has been an on-going challenge. My progress isn’t linear in any way, and often feels like one step forwards and five back. This is, therefore, an area rich for practice and study. Continue reading “Project 2 Proportion”
This is my first session in quite a while, and it shows:
The only one I really like is the 15 minute pose from behind, where I concentrated more on tone than line. For the 20 minute pose I managed to get lost in proportions, and didn’t have time to fix it. I think it was the foreshortening on the leg that threw me. It was a similar story with the final pose, although here I realised my mistake (which was the angle of the back this time) with enough time left for a partial fix.
In terms of moving forwards, I need to keep practising and so need to find a way to get to life drawing sessions more reliably. That is going to be a challenge given the timings of my new role.
