Some Figure Drawing

A few months before I moved to San Francisco, some friends and I started going on Sundays to figure drawing sessions at the Crealdé Art School in Winter Park, Florida. There was a different model each week and the classes usually lasted about 2 hrs. I am looking forward to finding something similar in the city; so far the only one I know about is at Berkley on Friday nights.

Strangely there were never male models on the days that I went, so I only have female drawings to share right now. I have included some 5 min gesture drawings, as well as some 20 min poses. Regardless of whether I am in front of a model or not, I plan on doing some hand and face structural studies in the near future; it has become clear in recent work that I am getting rusty in those areas (especially when trying to work from memory).

these are really impressive, kacey.

Yeah, I agree with Taylor, sweet drawings, very impressive you got a lot done in 20 minutes! I would tell you about some life drawing class im going to go here once a week on Wednesday nights, but i think it might be a little out of your way to fly to nova scotia every wed. lol

Yeah I'm not sure I can afford to fly out there each week... maybe after I get a job though :)

They're all great, but I'm super-impressed with the 5-minute gestures. Holy moly.

The 5min ones were my best ones out of many, it took me quite a few classes to even get warmed up at it. It's been months since then though so I REALLY need to find a new figure drawing class where I moved.
