Since my little figure drawing group has ground to a halt, I have to catch as catch can. Here are two drawings from this week's sessions at my house with the model.
And look at this earlier one, too, from my Figure Drawings album at left, the mirror image of the one above--It amused me how similar the two poses are:

Thanks so much for the nice comments! Terri, I did these not in a sketchbook, but on loose sheets of paper, 18" x 24". Linda, I'd love to know the reason why---I'm a fan of facts ;D. Lin, thank you, dear woman.

Gorgeous gorgeous as always. Laura, what size sketchbook were these done in? I've been trying to work in A2 size, but I think I should try a few in my smaller everyday sketchbook. Perhaps the size of the blank page in front of me is more intimidating that I realize. I love the confident line work in these. You make it look so simple and straightforward, and I KNOW it's not!! :o)

It's funny how the two poses are nearly exactly alike, isn't it! (There's a physiological reason for that ... but it takes all the fun out of it so I'm not going to tell you.)
:-D Love your figure sketches -- Drawing people's whole bodies is a lot harder than just their faces ... I'm always impressed with your work.

I really like these. Especially all the folds and the dark and light lines.

Life drawing is great isn't it! As a tutor said to me once, if you can learn to draw a person from life you can draw anything.......
