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 first installment in the series, master artist Glenn Vilppu draws along with you, working from Daily Life Drawing Sessions #1 through #5. Glenn shares his thoughts on these poses and shows how the fundamentals of gesture and structure apply equally from medium to medium. He demonstrates this by working in fountain pen, water color, and pencil.

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 Glenn.
