I think of it as the artist equivalent of going to the gym. The poses start at 2 minutes, getting longer as the session goes on, ending with a 20 minute pose. Swipe to see the poses get shorter.
Figure Drawing Practice
I go to figure drawing sessions as often as I can to stay in practice. The one I go to is short pose. We start with 30 second poses, slowly increasing the time every few rounds until we end with a 20 minute pose. If you’re compulsively detail oriented (like me), it’s a great way to loosen up and practice drawing faster. It forces me to get to the heart of the pose quickly, then move on. It’s about finding momentum rather than creating a perfect drawing.
