My first human figure drawing class

Since I arrived to Wilmington, DE I’ve been attending my first human figure drawing class at DCAD, Delaware College of Art and Design. I actually not enrolled in the class (my wife is) but the instructor has been kind enough to let me participate without the benefit of a full critique.

I’m enjoying sketching a new subject, new techniques and getting dirty with vine charcoal, compressed charcoal and Conte crayons. I’ve always wanted to understand how to draw the human figure and the class has been amazing.

Here are some of my sketches:

Charcoal it is

This past Saturday my wife and I decided to do some sketching with charcoal. We stacked a few apples by a glass vase with daisies on our dining table. I can count with my fingers the times I had done compressed charcoal before, but nonetheless this was a fun and interesting exercise.

Mixed Media on Super Bowl Sunday

I did a few sketches yesterday with different media, charcoal pencil, graphite pencil, markers, pen brush and a felt tip point pen. Some of them were done while watching the Super Bowl with a group of excellent friends. I like that switching media keeps me exploring and even feels like I’m playing.
