Secrets of drawing figures from life

Drawings and questions from Jeff, Drawing Academy student

I continue to attend figure drawing sessions from time to time. Recently, I did these two drawings in blue Prismacolor Premier colored pencil. Each drawing was based on a single 20-minute pose.

I am interested in any feedback you have for me.

Hi Roman,

Many thanks for your email and drawings. You told me that you have been drawing from photos for some time and now want to re-learn how to draw from life and imagination, but have some concerns about your progress.
