In this Draw Along, we do three 3 minute poses and then a 15 minute pose. We ramble a bit at the start, but hopefully our conversation makes a bit more sense after a bit 😉
In case you haven’t seen a Draw Along before, it’s all about practice – the number one ingredient to life drawing skills. We put up a series of Croquis Cafe photos on screen, draw them and narrate the process. If you like, you can draw along with us, and get some extra figure drawing practice.
Rather than needing to achieve correct drawings, try to relax into the drawing process. We talk about seeing the life models with lots of knowledge and preconceived ideas about figures versus seeing them as if for the first time, the materials we are using and various other challenges and techniques for life drawing.
