A second life-drawing session

I took part in my second life-drawing session at Metal on 13 March (you can read about my first session here). Having attended a full day on my first session, I thought I would try a half-day this time. I certainly found it less exhausting than a full day, as drawing from observation can be very tiring, and I felt I got much more out of this session.

In the morning we had a female model and again used a combination of props, costumes and lighting to add drama and intrigue to the poses.

To warm up we began with five, three minute poses, using charcoal.

Followed by two, five minute poses.

The following two poses were 30 minutes each and combined props, strong lighting and fabrics. I chose to use collage and mixed media to help capture the dramatic lighting effects and the different texture of the materials.
