I had a very good night at life drawing class tonight. I’m not 100% sure exactly why it went so well, but I do have some theories.
Tonight I actually felt like I was seeing the fruit of my labors. I completed several drawings and even though they were not 100% accurate they were all good drawing with enough accuracy that they didn’t look bad.
So why did tonight’s drawings go so well? I think its partly due to an increased confidence, drawing every day and enough lack of caring to be comfortable. More often I find that I am becoming more accurate at comparing difference with my eyes rather than with tools and measuring. I have done this several times with Bargue drawings. I will see something is off and look incorrect well before I can match the inconsistency with measuring.
I didn’t measure much at all with these drawings, I just drew with confidences and when my eye told me that something was off I tried to correct it.
