Thought I would share some naked chaps from life drawing at uni. These are a good few months old now but I'm still rather pleased with them (and that's saying something, being the raging art perfectionist/egomaniac that I am), if only because the experience of drawing the wobbly bits on nudes has been incredibly helpful in anatomy/form the usual gubbins.

All done in oil pastel on roughly A2 around.. march-ish time.

I really wish I had the chance to take life drawing classes sooner, my first year at uni being the first time I'd ever done it. Having a teacher on top of it all to push and poke me in the right direction was a massive help as well. 'Twas a nice gradual build-up over the months to the point where I could sit for a good few hours non-stop, concentrate on one picture and not feel the constant urge to wander off and put the kettle on.


  1. Super nice Daisy :D I really like the one at the top! They've all got some serious light and depth to them.

  2. Great mood on the first one.
    The sadness of life...
