Life-drawings and postcards

Some life-drawings from tonight's class. I made postcards for my ex-housemates, ...and because I find hard to separate from my drawings, I scanned my favorites. Here are a few of them (all are referenced).

Lifedrawings and a magazine-sketch

Yesterday's lifedrawing-class was very dull, without an inspiring model. My 'catch for the evening' where these two 1-2 minute sketches. Also a sketch from a magazine; I discovered a nice way to 'underpaint' a sketch using a light brush/marker-pen. The top layer is done with a brush using black ink.

John White Alexander (1856-1915)

A postcard with a painting that immediately cought my eye. Painted by John White Alexander, titled ' Jesse Steele reading'.

Today I joined a lifedrawing group; we drew all day, with a few intermissions. It was very tiresome, but good practise. Here are some of my sketches; all were done in 1-3 minutes.

Mr. Hyde

I recently read 'The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' by Robert Louis Stevenson. Here's a sketch of Mr. Hyde. The book is quite a page-turner!

Two crazy elves

Depressed mother

Remember I was trying to design a depressed mother? Here are some more of her sketches!

New lifedrawings..!

I haven't been able to ink this sketch the way I like. It does not work well with my light-table....
