Lemon and Clementine

life drawing, the block in

I am taking a drawing class with Dennis Cheaney who teaches the ideas of Ted Seth Jacobs.
This is a new idea on drawing for me and I love it. It has opened my mind to a way of drawing that I was aware of for years, but for some reason I never tried. Better late then never.

This is the block in stage, this is first time I tried this and it's real learning experience for me.

It's 2H pencil on paper, 14" x 17"

In this drawing I later noticed some issues with proportions.
The interesting thing about doing this kind of straight line block in is that you can see the problems right away. The other thing is that you can find the angles, tilts and gestures in the figure pretty quickly.
