five minute pose

At the start of our life drawing sessions at Swansea Print Workshop we have a few quick warm-up poses, typically no longer than 5 minutes each. They’re useful, especially if I’ve had a break and I’m a bit rusty. The first one is often awful; this one looks like Mr. Blobby, awkward, ugly and completely out of proportion. The second is much better, but still a bit out of proportion. The third pose is where I’m getting into my stride though, comfortable with the materials – chalk and willow charcoal into an A2 brown paper sketchbook – and comfortable with the model’s proportions.

    The good, the bad and the blobby? Thanks for being brave enough to share the full range of the nights efforts.

      Sometimes I look at my efforts and just want to give up. That’s when I carry on.
