Sketching People

Back to Wednesday life sketching. This time the girl was so beautiful and harmonious, that 1, 3, 5, 15 minutes sketching became such a stress. I've got so tired trying to catch her curves flow with not much success.


  1. The same thing happens to me. I find it easier to draw less than perfect subjects and bodies - character and wrinkles seem easier to capture with a line than the symmetry of perfect beauty. But its all about the experience of life drawing, the challenge and the lessons learned. I had a bad day at portrait painting in my life session this week - its all part of the journey.

  2. These are lovely, Irina, as a group, and individually!
    Life drawing is very challenging, and back when I was lucky enough to be a in a group, I was surprised by how much my reaction to the model affected my drawing.

  3. Irina, I love all these life sketches. I think you've captured the figure so well.
