Life drawings of a moving Butoh dancer

Here are some life drawings of a moving Butoh dancer made during a life drawing class at Taidehalli art gallery, Helsinki. Some of these drawings were made while I was moving around the space; in a few of them I moved 360 degrees around the subject.

Ghost of a life drawing

Ghost of a life drawing

This drawing was a happy accident from my point of view. Some charcoal life drawings had been in my sketchbook for a while. When I decided to take them out to fix the charcoal I found that some of the drawings had rubbed-off onto the other side of the paper. Most of them were very light, but this one happened to rub off onto thicker paper so caught more of the drawing. I really like the effect and actually think it works better than the original drawing!
