Life Drawing – Try it Sometime

When carving out some time for yourself, if you aren’t already doing so, why not try life drawing? Just for the fun of it.

Simply put, Life drawing or figure drawing is the drawing of the human form in various poses.

What this means you have a limited time to sketch your subject. The subject is always moving or, if posing, they can only hold that pose for a few minutes.

Maybe sketch your spouse or kids or pet doing whatever it is they are doing.

Here are a few sketches I’ve done during Life Drawing sketch sessions.
