I spend my Sunday mornings with a group of artists in a figure drawing studio, where we have a different model every week. We practice drawing from poses ranging from one minute to 25 minutes, in whatever medium we choose. It's no wonder the great masters always worked on drawing figures from life. There is no better practice for the hand and eye, and it is a skill that carries over to all subjects.

The drawing above is in pastel on Daler Rowney pastel paper. I love the different colors it comes in and the woven texture. This was a 20 minute pose---the last pose of the session. We were all a little sleepy by then, even the model!

I'm in the process of switching over to my new blog, so my Paypal links are already over there along with many more drawings from the session. If you're interested in purchasing this drawing, seeing the others I've posted, or just checking out my new site before it officially opens, just click here.

I'll be maintaining this blog too through the rest of the week as I make the changeover.
