I have attended hundreds of croquis/ life drawing sessions over the years. I am fascinated at studying the human form and likeness. Anatomy and skin shades are a subject with almost endless challenges. Here is a selection of short sketches and long position drawings.
The first gallery consists of long position portraits. The model sits still for 2-3 hours during a session (breaks are included every 20 min.). The paintings here are done with gouache and colour pencils.
The second gallery consists of shorter sketch like drawings. The drawings can last anywhere from 30 sec. up until 15 min - usually they are a couple of minutes long. They are made with various materials such as pencils, crayons, gouache, ink brush, pens and digital tablets. In some of the sessions, the models also dress up in costumes.
