The long and the short of it
Week 5 of the ASOC portrait and life drawing Workgroup and our model is Michael, who is on the tall side. Fitting him on the page presented challenges, so did some difficult foreshortening. Here's two of the longer drawings - both charcoal and pencil on cartridge paper (about 30 minutes each, cartridge paper, approx 41 cm by 50 cm). Tall Michael then foreshortened foot Michael.
Here's two done in the same 40 minute pose. Firstly, charcoal and pencil on cartridge paper (approx 50 cm by 41 cm, about 25 minutes), then charcoal and some watercolour pencil (approx 50 cm by 41 cm, about 15 minutes).
A couple of 5 minute sketches from the start of the session (charcoal on butchers paper, 50 cm by 75.5 cm).
