Life drawing: ink

Ink 1: 20 minute pose

In tandem with the OCA course, my life drawing classes are motoring on.  Last week’s class focused on soft pastels.  No matter what I tried, they just weren’t working for me on the night.  The problem stemmed from my attempts to concentrate on form rather than line – it all turned into a dusty heap.  I won’t have those drawings back for a few days (the tutor photographs them, as the course is accredited), so here are my efforts from the previous week – in ink.

As ever with ink, mistakes are committed to paper and remain for all to see!  That said, it’s still a favourite medium for me.
