Lead Free Figures
It's been a while since I did any figure sketching. Since our local supermarket closed their cafe for renovations and stole my free model sessions I used to have before my weekly grocery shop I haven't really had much opportunity.
I had intended to concentrate on figures for a month before I started my food journal, there are specific formats I want to address, namely, sketching directly with pen to create an essence of the figure. So I decided I'd make use of what I have recently and when Harry threw himself on the sofa the other morning I ran to grab my moleskin and a pen.
I also took a few moments to sketch the parents while standing outside Harry's classroom at hometime, a first for me, it was very busy and very fast!
Lastly, I took a few minutes to whip through some 45 second poses on the Posemaniacs website, concentrating on the upper body and head angles.
