Here are some of my efforts....
We started with some quick 5 minute sketches - I like doing these as I enjoy working quickly. I also think that when you make mistakes or you aren't so happy with the results you feel more comfortable with yourself knowing you only had five minutes to do it in!
We then went on to some longer poses. Originally she planned to pose for an hour or more for a couple of them but the room was freezing cold so she only did up to 30 minutes. I was happy with this as would have struggled to fill an hour with one picture. In fact osme of the 30 minute poses I broke down in to 2 or more pics.
I had watched a video on the OCA website about starting a life drawing with shapes - squares, triangles, sausages etc so decided to try this method out. I think it worked well as my best proportioned piece but perhaps not my favourite as slightly stiffer and more formal than the others. I do think it would be useful though if doing preparatory sketches or if working for a longer time.
I then tried some pen drawings as my favourite medium. Maybe because you can't make any changes and it is pretty unforgiving so you just have to get on with it
Here are 3 diff pics of the same pose. I found this really tricky to work with as it looked very unnatural to me.
I liked this effect so did some more.
