Figure Life Drawing

Celeste work in progress, showing my approach. Working from highlights backward into black shadows. My goal this year was to shake off rust starting with simple values, before introducing colour.

Description

I have begun attending drop-in life drawing session again on 2022, these are the finished pieces done from these sessions. I have not worked on human form, portrait, and figure life drawing since my leave of art school in 2013. These are my favourites of my weekly sessions at X-Changes Gallery in Victoria, and Metchosin ArtPod Gallery. Also included here are some experimentations from schooling 2009 through 2013. All images are drawn from life.
