Here are some 1 to 2 minute poses from a couple of croquis cafe sessions. Episodes 99 and 100 I believe.
These are all my homemade walnut ink in a 9 x 12 sketchbook.
Thanks for checking it out.

And so it begins. I chose to take Life Drawing this semester. Why? I can only plead temporary insanity. The human figure is my greatest challenge. We will be drawing Live Models. I have to work regularly in a small sketch book throughout the semester in a sketchbook that is at least 100 pages. He says, a page a day will get you there. So tonight, I began. I still need to get a dedicated book. These will be inserted into the book when I get it.
The book I'm working from is Figure Drawing For All It's Worth by Andrew Loomis. #FigureDrawing#AndrewLoomis#LifeDrawing#ArtStudent#ChallengeAccepted#MLyonArt#AmIDoneYet
So much gratitude towards the positive energy that’s greeted me here in Chicago. This capture is a perfect example of what I mean. S/o to @j.a.medcalf for the connection, @jusdey for booking, and @pariswilliams92 for shooting the first “Painting An Original Peace” event, hosted within @hobchicago !
I love these moments of affirmation that remind me: I am on the right track, beyond capable, and fully equipped. 📝: Keep saying “YES!” Your avenues will be revealed to you, just be sure to go while the path is lit. ✨
#tutorialtuesday Another important concept of gesture is what path the weight takes through the body and where the main points of tension are as a result. A common beginner's mistake is to straighten out the figure, as in the edited version on the right. The model's pose will naturally shift over time - take every opportunity to capture aspects that will enhance your drawing's gesture! #drawing#lifedrawing#gesture#drawinglessons
