Draw Along Club 9 – PRACTISE LIFE DRAWING with us

Get our guide ‘Life Drawing Success’, which is all about the one big mistake which led to all my other mistakes:

Practice is the key ingredient to learning life drawing, and these videos are designed to help you get more of it. Draw Along club videos involve us putting up a series of reference poses on the screen from Croquis Cafe, drawing them and narrating the process. So if you like, you can get out your sketchbook and draw the figures along with us.

This time we started with two 30 seconds drawings – a great way to loosen up and let go. Then two 60 second drawings, which feel like a lifetime after the 30 second ones. Then two 5 minute drawings and a 12 minute drawing.

We discuss each pose and how we tackled them, how our materials affect our approach and the shapes and lines we were looking for to help guide the drawing.
