under the bridges of Paris

A couple more from this week's Dr. Sketchy event. In fact, I think I might just dedicate this whole week to lovely ladies and Dr. Sketchy.
Life drawing is all new to me so I have to ease myself into these drawing sessions. I start by sketching each new pose in my 'warm up' note book (the blue lined paper). If I like the pose, and the composition it makes on the page, I'll then re sketch it into my Moleskine sketchbook. I often then play around with the Moleskine sketches at home. Pimp them up, if you like.

So, that's what you have here; two versions of the same pose by the lovely Miss Pixie Parfait. The bottom is the warm up and at the top of this post the worked up version.

I like how you were able to later enhance your sketch. I am new to life drawings, I sometimes get hung up on one area and take too much time. I also liked the roller derby girls.

I love the "worked up" version - it is great to get all the information you need in the session and then work it up. Great style (as always).

Thanks guys.

Yes, Nancy, me too. That's why I play around with quick sketches before going in for the details.

Cheers.
