I started going to a new figure-drawing sketchgroup at the beginning of the year. This has been very exciting for me. I have a certain passion for the human body.
I wasn’t very happy with my initial sketches. First of all, my skill with drawing from live models was a bit rusty. But I felt pretty confident that if I kept at it, I would get better eventually.
Secondly, the model for my first couple sessions was male. Men are more difficult for me to draw-something about the angles in their lines. This makes me a little sad, since I have a tremendous amount of admiration for the male figure.
The lines of a woman, on the other hand, have an energy that just flows onto the paper. Some may suggest that women are just more beautiful, but I disagree. What do you think?
