Life drawing


I went to an open life drawing session yesterday with a friend. I felt a bit rusty, but it was ok after a few warm-up drawings. I like fast poses, it makes me relax in some strange way when I don´t even have a chance to get too caught up in details. All of these were three to four minute poses, except the one on the far left, which was probably around eight minutes.

Each drawing is about 20-30 cm high, drawn in pencil on copier paper. Collage made in Photoshop.

  1. Nina, your line quality is SO expressive–beautiful work, as always!

  2. Beautiful! Uh, I should look for some open life drawing sessions myself, it has been by far too long. Thank you for the good example. I love your drawings.

    Line, substance, movement – even charming toes on the seated figure. What a great session!

    These are wonderful, Nina! It’s amazing the way you seem to get it right in such a short time – and so much detail!
    I love your new blog – it’s been way too long since I’ve seen your work – you are so inspiring!

    For some reason with figure drawing you have to keep in practice (like working out). I bet it felt good to do these – wonderful drawing.

    Very nice drawings! I too have started drawing from live models again and it’s not like riding a bike! However, it looks like you’ve been at it for a while. I can’t capture that same control and line that you do in 3-4 minutes. They’re very lovely drawings!

    love your new place, endless inspiration! :)

  9. Love your figure sketches…but there isn’t anything you do that I don’t like!! You’re just a born artist.
