Sketching at FIT

Last night I went to a wonderful sketch night at FIT organized by the always inspirational Melanie Reim. It was a night steeped in nostalgia in many ways, drawing on our old turf for several hours. I'm a big fan of the way Melanie structures drawing sessions. Most poses are kept very short, giving you time to put it down without getting too fussy. This creates a great energy in the room, which everyone contributes to and feeds off of. The drawings below are a few of my favorites from the night. The sketches on kraft paper were from one minute poses, and the ones on white were five minutes.
