Life Drawing Live

BBC life drawing

I checked into the live life drawing session on BBC4 this evening and did this 5 minute sketch. I couldn’t stay for the full programme, it’s family Zoom quiz night, but I’ll catch up with it later in the week and draw the rest of the models. There’s a lot of art happening on the TV during lockdown, it’s great. The model is copying the pose of Velazquez’ Rokeby Venus. I used a solid graphite block onto some vintage Fabriano paper.

    Wow…live life drawing on TV. Sadly over here in Trump-land we only have live porn, which makes it hard to draw because they’re moving around so much 🙂

      I suppose you could ‘pause’ but I suspect it might be difficult to catch them in a ‘classical’ pose 😀

    Brilliant! My husband did it as well, enjoyed it, but I think he realise how “rusty” he is with life drawing!

      It was great, once Husb had done that thing with the Red Button. I didn’t even know we had a Red Button – very Doctor Strangelove 😉
