Life drawing, Close to Home, by Elaine

Hi everyone, I have been loving all the stories that come with your sketches.  Wonderful to read!

Below are some sketches I did over a 5-hour period with friends, where they came to my house and we took turns being the model.  Sorry to be so greedy and show them all, but I can't pick a favorite!


  1. How great that you all took tuns posing. These are really nice!!

  2. Wow, I can't pick a favorite either! What a cool ideaI happy to see you sharing here! These are all so well done!

  3. What a great idea, Elaine! Thanks for sharing them all!

  4. Wow these are fabulous... I love them all...what a great idea!!

  5. Great to see all these drawings - I can't choose a favourite either, I love them all :-)

  6. What a fun day! The sketches are wonderful. I particularly like the reclining one.

  7. It was a good idea to sketch each others! You have done them very good. Perhpas the first one and the last one are my favourites:)

  8. The reclining figure is superb! Foreshortening is really tricky but I think you've done a wonderful job on this, the lines are confident, clean and sure. I love the picture of the baby. I find it very tender, warm and sympathetic. Lovely work!!
