Lifedrawings?

Its been a long time since I've posted lifedrawings. Usually I just post paintings and illustrations. Recently, I wanted to use lifedrawing as a way of warm up before I start my daily work/routines and keeping the drawing and painting alive in me. I am currently working on ideas at the same time for my next batch of paintings. So this is great to loosen up and keep myself warmed up while I work on other things.

I've been into exploring tone, colour and energy. So here are some lifedrawings from the last few weeks.

These are all studies with chalk pastels and/or charcoal. Its been really fun to play with.
These are also a range from short studies of gestures 2 min, 5min to longer poses where I can use some colour 15mins, 20mins and 30 mins.

EL Gato Negro said...

makes me wanna do some life drawing but they took out the open figure drawing class, i hate the world for that haha.
sigh............. great stuff .

Peter Hong Chan said...

Thanks EL, ah yea when I don't have access to open figure drawing class within a school I'll go outside to search for a gallery or a place with extra lifedrawing...it'll cost a few bucks, but worth it.

I hope you'll have the chance to lifedraw soon!!
