Artist’s Drawings, quick sketches

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  Before drawing poses that last for 1 or 2 hours I often start with a 2 to 5 minute warm-up quick sketch. This is a normal procedure for artists when attending life drawing classes. Often when I’m struggling with a particular pose in a painting I resort to a detailed rendering of a particular feature such the angle of the hips in relation to the shoulders.
