Some images from our latest life drawing session. The first lot are 2 minute 'mass and line' sketches. The first minute is used to block out mass and the second to refine with line over the top. The second image is two 15 minute poses with the time broken down into defined categories. These were: Gesture (1mins), shapes (1mins), boxing in (1mins), shape refinement (3mins), tone (4mins), and tone consolidation (5mins).

Here is the first in a group of relatively quick facial studies I will hopefully be doing daily. The object of the exercise is to study and practice facial structure and expression. As with the earlier self portraits I will be hooking a small mirror over the frame of my cintiq so as to reduce head movements. All I have to do then is pull the same dumb expression while I work. Some people will no doubt think this is a task I am quite well suited to ;p
