Live model sketches at the museum
Today I went to an open live model session in a museum. It occurs a few times a year and it's quite fun to have models posing among neoclassical paintings. Usually I would have taken large paper and charcoal but today for practical reasons I could only have my sketchbook. So my first aim was to work on composition, placing the model in its environment, but finally I really had to concentrate on construction and anatomy. There were one man and one woman, it lasted for 2 hours with lots of quick gesture drawings and a few 15-20mn poses.
