Some short poses from Tuesday nights session. 15, 10 and 5 minutes.
The element of time comes into play when drawing short poses. What do you do. How do you approach the paper. Try and express whole figure or just the essence. The sensitive placement of the hand. The elegant point of the toe or the rhythmic twist of the torso? Mostly there is little tome to choose. You make some quick measures and attack. First with the charcoal then with the chalks. No time to recheck proportions. Just trying to get the feelings.
It’s not hard when the model is a dancer, an artist.
