More Life Studies – Student Model

Figure Studies, personal



In these Life Drawing classes, when the model wouldn’t turn up, the teacher would be forced to ask one of the students to sit for some poses for the rest of the class (fully clothed of course). As is the case with every class I’ve ever taken in my life, I would invariably mentally latch onto one female student in the class to ‘have a secret crush on’, and much to my good fortune, this particular girl was chosen during one class to sit for the rest of us. The drawing above was from that one session. I remember laboring endlessly on the face to get it right. I don’t remember if the drawing below was of the same girl or not, but I wasn’t as happy with how that one turned out.
