|2 minute continuous line drawing in pen|
A somewhat stressful start to this evenings session; I got home late after a meeting at work to find my model had emailed saying they were unable to make the session. Cue major panic and a flurry of emails in an effort to find a model. Fortunately, one of my regular models was able to make the session so everything worked out just fine in the end!

I wasn't so happy with my drawings this evening, I think maybe because of the stressful start and coming down with yet another cold (when will the snot cease?) However, there were a few line drawings I liked and although the proportions are a bit out I was pleased with my drawing from the long pose (see last picture.) I chose to take a slightly unusual approach to the composition which I think has worked quite well.

I like drawing Nick as he has a very 'solid' feeling. When I draw him I feel the need to make big, substantial drawings. I enjoy the fact that all my models personalities affect how I draw them; I think it is an important element of life drawing to draw the person rather than just the body.
