Life drawing 10: 04.07.14 The character actor.

The final session of this series. Great fun.

The body went a bit long but there were some good passages. 4o mins.

Character actor hand

The hand and the shoulders are the the kind of thing I’m striving for. The mix of gestural brushstrokes, descriptive colour choices and incisive drawing.

The other side of the top pose. This was done from the floor. Mainly conté pastels with the last minute appliance of acrylics. 40 mins.

This pose was tough. Drawn over 2 other works (Mr. Skellington and the warm up pose). 15 mins.

Two 15 minute poses. The model was on two tables holding sticks.

The model is a great guy. Afterwards he showed around images of him in costume as a 17th c. body snatcher! Fantastical Hogarthian.

Hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these drawings. I’ve had a ball.
