more life drawing…

Had another life drawing class this week. I thought I’d put a photo up of what I did since the last life drawing pictures had some nice comments, and also because the style could work for another spotsandlines dog picture – not of Olive though, probably a dog with a coat made of less contrasting colours…

So we covered off-white paper in charcoal then picked out the negative space, rather than drawing the outlines of a figure, by rubbing out the shapes that the light hit. So what you see here had no outlines, just rubbed out space. I think it creates quite a nice, dreamy atmosphere. Might be nice for a picture of a sleepy dog by a fire on a cosy evening…
