In university I was very lucky to have the opportunity to continue my art practice with my fine arts minor. These are some of my favourite life drawings. I really enjoyed my drawing class. During this class I felt like I experienced some weird, artistic, right of passage learning how to ‘draw life’. Life drawing is something all (visual) art students learn at some point during their artistic career. It was nice to be a part of that experience.
Life drawing is very liberating. It’s an odd feeling to draw someone who is so vulnerable and open and trusting. The technique for life drawing is surprisingly different from other types of drawing, like my high school portraits, for example. It’s much more fluid and organic.
Now, if I was a clever person, I would make some smart metaphor about life and life drawing being organic… but I’m not very witty!
