    Hi srsanyal

    I like what you’ve done. Especially the first portrait. My only critique would be to try and show more structure under the face and head. How you do that is another question! Maybe thinking more in three dimensions or choose some places to place the occasional straight edge to emphasise the form, ie the jaw , nose or brow ridge. I dunno.  Art instructors may think otherwise…

    Up to short poses in the RAD course. Very unfamiliar approach, as Ilya says. Feels very loose and uncontrolled.

    hi beth,

    yes, i meant in terms of time. Also, really spending the full practice time in the RAD course at the beginning is really important to help you improve your mark making, drawing forms, as well as light and shadow. sometimes it seems tedious but as you progress you understand why its important.

    Hi Robert,

    Not that i know a lot, but you could try thinking of your figures more in terms of boxes and cylinders to help build structure underneath the surface. It may help you feel the planes of the figure as well as bring the closer parts of the figure toward you and the push the further away limbs away from you.

    cheers lizzie

    Hi Beth,

    have you tried lots of long and short poses? Repetition helps. You’ll plateau but then you’ll have a break through. I really try to draw what I see not what I think I see, if you can understand that. I got a lot from Steve Houston’s figure drawing courses too.

    Thanks Beth. I find it a struggle but very rewarding. I’m unable to work at the moment as we are in lockdown due to COVID so have lots of time available which is lovely in some ways. I’m a myotherapist so very familiar with the anatomy.  Thanks for your encouragement.I’ll checkout your work.
