Life Drawing - 25min poses

I had a pretty good morning at life drawing Saturday.

I threw away a few disasters but salvaged some lessons from today's experience.

I'm beginning to utilize some of the advice of Richard Schmid from his book Alla Prima in identifying edges and blocking in values while also incorporating line drawing to identify my proportions and add some flourish here and there.

Tess Sketches

As you can see I am still working on the 'sun-kist' section of my sketch book. I did some drawings of Tess a couple of nights ago - from life, sitting at the dining room table. Pretty quick, maybe 45min. total for the page. She's pretty cute. :D
