Life Drawings (September 3, 2009)

So yesterday at the drawing session I started off badly but I was warmed up pretty quickly. The session started with gestures, then we moved into 10 minute poses and finally 3 half hour poses. so on the first half hour pose I had started off with getting the gesture down with a yellow china marker (my favourite medium for life drawing) on a fluorescent green piece of paper. It was starting to look really awesome I thought and I was like wow this is starting to be the best drawing ive ever done. Then I realized how hard the light yellow was to see on the neon green, so I decided to go over it in red china marker so that it will stand out more. Typical of me, I had ruined the drawing because the traced red looked dead and lifeless D:< !!!! I always make decisions that I know deep down will look like crap but for some reason I do it anyways cuz im an idiot. I was really ticked off for the rest of the session because of what I had done lol. Then on the last drawing, I started drawing on a green piece of paper with (once again) YELLOW! turns out, its hard to see (who would think:O)! So what did I learn? I learned that I do not learn from my mistakes.

I'm supposed to be going drawing again on Saturday so maybe I'll have learned from my mistake by then.
