These are quick (no kidding) 2 minute life drawing session poses.
Painted on 6" x 6" canvas pad, and photographed wet, pinned on a bulletin board.
No time for eyes and noses, just 2 minutes of looking and painting.
Actually, by the time I got the canvas paper in place, probably 1 minute 45 seconds each.

With only 2 minutes, and me frantically trying to clamp my little 6 x 6 sheet onto the clipboard, there wasn't much time to change anything. But that's what made it fun. How much painting and mixing can you do in such a short time...

I normally do quick figure gestures with pencil on white bond paper. The gestures start at 30 seconds, then we do 1 minute, 2, 5 and 10 minute. I should post a few of those 30 second sketches, they are quite interesting. I try to get the gesture (only that) so I can later tell what the model was doing. It helps me focus on capturing what I see.

Do either of you have any life drawing sessions available near where you live?

I haven't checked it out yet. Still trying to learn to just plain paint a decent picture. You are doing wonderfully.

There's not much of anything near where I live! (Wait, do cows count?)

Jan, I tried drawing at the local zoo last summer. But the animals were moving so much that I would get 2 lines and then they would change position. Part of a leg, a horn, a tail. My sheets looked like curves and lines, none connected. Cows, though, might stand still for a few minutes...

Amazing that you get so much non-detail in 2 minutes and yet have somuch information. It looks like a real challenge.
