Croquis – First impressions

I have heard so many positive opinions about attending life drawing or croquis as we call it. I finally got the opportunity and it was in many ways challenging.

I went for chalk to draw with and a blending stump to add some shadows.  It was okay but it was difficult to get fine lines compared to an ordinary 2B pencil. On the other hand it was easy to do the shadows.

We worked in progressively shorter poses ending up with 30 seconds as the shortest.

We also had to try drawing with our non dominant hand.  Now that was a challenge but it went well much to my surprise.

The longest pose was for 10 minutes. Obviously there was more time so I could manage to add some white chalk for highlights and I drew on a tan coloured paper.

    It’s really the spimle things that are most difficult and usually end up being the most satisfying! My new getting ready for bed involves browsing your blog and marveling at your talent!
