Figure drawing

After the morning sessions of drawing from the Bargue plates, we have life study class in the noon.
This is our studio:
Studio for life drawing class

We started with gesture drawing. The figure needs to be drawn in simple 'C' curves and 'S' curves and straight lines. Then to define the shapes more clearly, we learnt to do the straight line articulation.

Some of my drawings from last week:

After the first two steps, the next is construct of the shadow shape. Squint the eyes and draw the lines where you see shadow shapes and fill it with graphite:

    There's a contemplative feel to the drawings.
