Life Drawing

Some weeks ago I had the chance to attend a life drawing class at Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. This two day class resulted in a large number of sketches, I'll only show a few off .

We had a model available nearly the whole time and also got a lot of chance to practice some basic drawing techniques.

From line drawings to dipping all our fingers into loose graphit powder and "mold" the figure onto the paper to shading we tried everything.

 White chalk helped to get highlights and stronger shadows brought out the plasticity of the figure.
I wish such a class would be more often!
