There is alot to be said about experience. This is Yanna, and one of my favourite and best models. She’s been at it since she was 18 and she has grand-children. She is so at ease you never see her finding or settling into a pose. She’s slides right into them as the most natural thing in the world. She is calm, relaxed, and chatty. Given her long tenure as a model, she is a veritable ‘who’s who’ of the Toronto art scene. Her poses are interesting and varied.
Blaming the model for a bad drawing is just making excuses, but I must admit, that having Yanna as a model makes life drawing seem almost easy.
Some one and two minute poses, and a pre-class doodle. I love drawing Yanna.
