Our Daily Life Drawing Sessions are free timed reference videos that allows artists to practice figure drawing from images of life models. Now, we’ve taken this popular resource and put a new twist on them — demonstrations from your New Masters Academy instructors! In this installment, master draftsman and painter, Danny Galieote, draws along with you, working from Daily Life Drawing Sessions 1 through 5. Danny works with various drawing pencils on charcoal paper, sharing his thoughts on these poses and demonstrating the fundamentals of gesture and structure. To maximize your learning experience, we encourage you to work from the drawings sessions yourself first so that you can compare your drawing decisions with those of Danny.
