LIFE DRAWING



The Art of Joel Fletcher
Here is a selection of drawings from the live figure model, both nude and clothed. The key is to capture the spirit of the pose quickly, as the model holds the position for a very short time. Most of these sketches took between 5 and 15 minutes. Four portrait paintings from life are also included. These were created in art workshops at Disney from 1997 to 2000.
