twenty to life...

I can't let you guys have all the fun! though I can't come close to being as clever as the drawings Laura is doing and my subject is a lot less hairy than Hilary's.
I'm not sure if this is cheating but it was life night on Wednesday so that's where my drawings are from this week ( and maybe next as well)  but they are timed drawings...I hope you all won't ban me from the challenge!?

This is  Debbie...both 20 minutes with charcoal pencil on newsprint.


  1. Great drawings Catherine .... just as well Debbie isn't as hairy as Dixter! One of these days I will have to take my courage in both hands and try a life class .... as drawer, not model I hasten to add! - Hilary x

  2. Thanks Hilary... hair on life models is an amazing thing!
    I have been drawing for a number of years now and over the years things have changed. It used to be the female models were shaved and the men were au naturel and now it's the men who are shaved and the women aren't! Who knows what's next....

  3. Brilliant Catherine. I find life drawing one of the most difficult things ever! Foreshortening is a nightmare for me. I've decided to dedicate next Wed morning to doing some drawing (time is that tight at the moment!!) so I may or may not post after that depending on how things go!!
