A Quick Head

17 Feb



A quick portrait sketch from last evening’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I used white, sanguine and black conté crayons (in that order) into my brown paper sketchbook. It took about 15 minutes.


I love to work with life models, it’s so absorbing to be able to focus and take my time studying, analysing and recording what’s in front of me. I enjoy surreptitious speed sketching into my sketchbook when I’m out and about but it’s not as satisfying as life drawing.

    Lots of energy in this one.

      It’s good to restrict the time, I think it gives a more dynamic drawing ☺
