Draw just a section of the figure as large as possible on the paper, then you could add paper 
for the next section.  Here I kept changing my mind about the position of the arms. Derek Batty

 

Extend your artistic skills by drawing the figure in expressive life drawing classes. There is expert guidance to enable you to get the most from our inspiring models.

It is a great way to develop and maintain your skill in visual art and can form a core element in your art practice.  Here in Cambridge you can find the best classes which will inspire and enhance your art practice.

Art students will find the courses fit well with the demands of the A level and beyond especially in preparing a portfolio of artwork for a college application. 

Practising artists also relish the regular discipline of drawing the figure. I offer specialist classes for those involved in graphics and computer games industries. In Cambridge Drawing we use a wide range of models who can help us with topics such as animation, anatomy and character.

There are regular demonstrations on a variety of topics which aim to guarantee success for beginners and professional insight for those with more experience.

Looking forward to drawing with you!
