    Bacchus and Ariadne

    The final exercise of the class draws on Guido Reni's Bacchus and Ariadne. Our models are deliberately posed closer together though so as to overlap.

  7. Now on Pose Cam - Exercise five on Tone

    Degas

    The pose in this fifth exercise has been selected as it has negative space for the artists to create the shape of the figure. It is influenced by Degas' Dancer at Rest.

  11. Exercise three coming up on Pose Cam

    Seated

    Next, our model is seated for our third exercise. This one lasts 15 minutes. The pose has been chosen primarily to test artists’ ability to draw hands and feet, although it also requires some use of foreshortening - which will be explored in more depth in the following exercise.

  15. The first pose

    Inspired by Michelangelo

    Welcome to the first ever Life Drawing Live!

    If you are ready with your charcoals and pencil, it's time to press play on Pose Cam above and get drawing.

    The first exercise, which is 3 mins only(!) sees the model standing in a pose influenced by one of the most famous sculptures of all time, Michelangelo's David.

    Our model adapts this pose, with arms bent in a V towards his head. We've done this to make it a more interesting form for the artists.
