Wednesday figures, Remembering to "Draw Through"

A five minute, and a twenty minute pose respectively.

Drawing Through

We had a long pose last night as well, but I choked. I tend to really stiffen up with the long poses, and I forget to "draw through" or basically, to lightly gesture in where a limb is covering up another limb. Not gesturing in where one part of the anatomy falls behind another often ends up in a disjointed looking drawing with poor anatomy. Drawing through is something I do all the time with figures I draw from photos or my imagination because I'm more conscious of reinventing the figure on the page to suit my needs, but I need to treat life drawing in the same way. Lesson learned.
