I go to a figure drawing group which is held once a week. It’s a good drawing exercise, and it’s also a good time to interact with other artists. The space we meet in is huge and very nice, so it gives us plenty of room to have the model do a lot of dramatic poses.
People work in all sorts of medium, paint, pencil, charcoal, iPhone, digital and I think last time, someone did some really great drawings using Sharpies.
Here are some of the drawings I did from the last session. If you are an artist in the New York area, this group is located in Brooklyn, and is a great group.
