So you have reached that point with your drawing or your painting where you seem to be stuck. You could be missing something really simple. I have a checklist of questions to ask yourself if you just can’t work out why your work doesn’t look how you want it to look. This checklist may seem simple to some people but it is amazing how many learners do not ask themselves these questions:
Life drawing is drawing (or sometimes painting) of the human figure from a live model. Sometimes the model is clothed or semi-clothed but the idea is that you can observe the human form in its ‘life’ or natural form.
Drawing clothed models is very useful of course because you can get to observe the folds and creases of the clothing. Life drawing has the advantage of seeing the anatomy as it is and sometimes to understand how clothing behaves in the way it falls and creases we have to understand what is underneath, the anatomy.
