Life Drawings

Hey Blog faces.
I have started life drawing again after a year or so not attending my local group. Here is what I have been up to:This was a first for me. A pregnant model. She was very very good indeed. A pleasure to draw!
These are both 1 hour drawings. The first is on Canford card. I drew with a Polychromos to block out then nearly cocked it up with graphite powder that just slid around the toothless card. Then i was forced into using beefier materials to try and save it. The black is compressed charcoal and Conte. The white is a pastel pencil.
1 Hour again. This is on cheap sugar paper. It was drawn with my trusty old Faber-Castell Polychromos black pencil. I cannot recommend these pencils highly enough. Great! Used a white pencil for white bits.
5 mins. Compressed charcoal.
30 mins. Compressed charcoal and white pastel pencil.
30 mins. Compressed charcoal and white pastel pencil.
Dr Sketchy Nottingham. This was the best session so far for me. We all had such an ace day! The models were both superb. This one is 15 mins of frantic scribbling. Polychrome pencil and then Posca markers on grey card.
Brown wrapping paper, Polychrome black and pastel pencil white. 15mins.
Brown wrapping paper, Polychrome black and pastel pencil white & compressed charcoal stump. 15mins. This one of the luverly Frankii Wilde won me a brilliant large format Elvis book full of ace photos. Thanks!

Glad you enjoyed the Elvis book, been itching to give that as a prize for months, there wasnt room on my bookshelf as it's so enourmous so it's been taking up my entire living room! Glad it's gone to a good home!

I was just wondering who your first model was? (the pregnant woman)
