An Older Male Model

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop, working this evening with an older male model. I drew with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and a free Markers app. This is a quite long pose, almost an hour, but I didn’t really get into the zone this evening. Still, it’s good to practice and to push yourself when you’re feeling tired and uncreative.

Sometimes, people are surprised that our group has access to older life models. We have two retirees who pose regularly and two middle-aged. It’s harder to get regular younger models. But to be honest, older models are often easier to draw because their bodies are more lived in, more shapes and textures.

    Really loving your markers sketches. You’re doing a really great job with the app. Do you use a stylus of some kind or do you use your fingertips? Great sketches and this one definitely doesn’t show any tiredness that you were feeling! Very expressive and my eyes are particularly drawn to the right hand for some reason. Beautiful quality about it.

      Thank you. I’m using the smart stylus that comes with the machine, although I use my fingers if I want some randomness in the background 🙂

    Older models are more interesting to draw… more wibbly wobbly bits 😀

    They’re pretty good sketches for a cat, Sparta.
