#OneWeek100People2017 Day 4: Life drawing
I took the easy path for my quota of people on day 4, a gesture drawing session at Basic Inquiry. Posing models are a lot easier to draw - they're not moving, and you can look long enough to figure out what they actually look like. You can create stories too, if you do the drawings together with a bit of attention to overlaps and perspective. Mind you, you never know what the next pose is going to be, and with some fairly unconventional ones here, it's not entirely clear what the story is... These are 2 and 3 minute poses in charcoal and pastel, and 5 minute poses in ink and watercolour. And I count 34 people here, so I'm almost done!
