And some three-hour oil (yes oil) sketches I've done recently at some long-pose sessions.

  1. Hi Paul, My teacher once told me, figure drawing should spend more time in observation and you will need less time to draw. How do you distribute your time on life drawings? Is it very different than urban sketching on time management?

    1. Hi Alvin, I agree there is a certain amount of observation that one needs to do before drawing, but I don't know if I think there is a difference between the figure and anything else. I know I'm always running out of time with my figure sketches, so maybe I should try looking longer first ;) Of course, observation only goes so far. If you have never drawn before, you can spend all day looking at something, but that doesn't mean you will know how to draw it when you finally start.
