Life Drawing and Cafe Sketches

This semester Life Drawing was a very relaxed affair with Rick. It was about experimentation, observation and style, not that much about anatomy (he’d still point out the bad anatomy, though).

I tried pastels for some of the drawings:

Some prismacolor bars (super waxy and easy to use):

Life Drawing in Gladstone Hotel

Gladstone Hotel has this nice sessions going on in downtown TO once a week, where you listen to jazz while you draw and can bring a nice coffee from their cafe over to the “Art Bar”, which is a small, cozy room. It’s a rather quieter crowd than what I’m used to, but it’s a very nice Life Drawing session to attend.

As you can see, I’m still using ink when I’m not in Werner’s class, which I do out of fear of using those Conté bars. I promise I’ll at least try to do some pastels next week. Pinky promise.
