COFA LIFE DRAWING (4 of 4 parts)
Materials: Black ink, lead pencil, charcoal/pastel, A3 paper, female model.
This was my first life drawing experience so I didn't really have any idea of what we were doing or what to expect. Once we did start everything turned out really well and heaps of fun.
I did the 2 hour life drawing session at the College of Fine Arts (UNSW) 2008 Spring Fair event.
About Life Drawing (also referred to as Figure Drawing):
Figure drawing is an exercise in drawing the human body in its various shapes and positions. Life drawing refers to the process of drawing the human figure from observation of a live model. Figure drawing is arguably the most difficult subject an artist commonly encounters, and entire classes are dedicated to the subject.
The human figure is one of the most enduring themes in the visual arts, and figure drawing can be applied to portraiture, cartooning and comic book illustration, sculpture, medical illustration, and other fields that use depictions of the human form. Figure drawing can be done very simply, as in gesture drawing, or in more detail, using charcoal, pencil or other drawing tools. If pigment is used, the process may be called figure painting.
