Shelby Bledsoe has created a range of wonderful paintings for the Life drawing and painting course. Shelby has used an online photo resource to paint and draw the life models, which is often much easier than heading out to a local class. Although if you do have access to a local class and you can get there – definitely go! There is nothing better than drawing a life model from life.
If you are unable to draw from life however, there are many options available and we have always found Youtube is one of the easiest to use. A good example below is a series of poses created by the New Masters Academy channel. You could in fact not only use the timed version, but you cn also hit pause on the video and draw a slightly longer more in depth study if required. Don’t forget to set your video to 1080p which is a high definition version, from the cog at the bottom right hand corner of the video.
We hope you enjoy the video and enjoy practicing drawing. Let us know how you get on!
