Sketching figures

On the last day of class we focused on sketching figures.  I don't sketch figures often, but I can do them.   As long as they are from behind, have a hat on and are only an inch high.  The first exercise was to sketch a figure from a photo.  I had taken a photo the day before at Newport State Park of people on the beach, so I used that photo.

The next exercise was much harder.  Marilynn had us all sit in a circle.  Then sketch someone across from us.  We had 45 minutes.  Oh my.  Not only was it a figure, with a face, but they were sitting.  Actually the sketches all turned out well, even mine.
