Here I have carried out some life drawings of a life model in a workshop we did. We used charcoal to create most of the sketches, but we also used a technique called chiaroscuro (last picture), to create a sketch that accentuates tone and dark areas.

In a second workshop I worked with pencil as I felt more comfortable with pencil instead of charcoal. We looked at line, mass and measurement of the body, and then we did a final sketch which is the lying down sketch.

Overall I am happy with most of my sketches, especially the pencil sketch of the model lying down as they are proportionate and look realistic.
