Challenging life drawing

This week, the tutor Henry decided to start us off with a countless amount of 2 minute poses- what a nightmare! As soon as you were just getting into the drawing the model would move. It helped your brain process key information quickly and figure out which lines are most important in capturing a pose. We then did a number of poses of which we did not know the length. This proved tricky for most of us but did succeed in us concentrating on the essential qualities instead of getting bogged down with unnecessary detail such as the hair.

The model was extremely flexible and her poses were often obscure and unnatural looking. Henry told us to concentrate on drawing exactly what we saw, even if it did look inhuman!
