Figure drawing with MANKO: video tutorial with Raw Umber’s Lizet Dingemans

In this hour-long online session, Manko from the Art Model Collective poses in a variety of seated poses.

Soft yet well-defined lighting, an elegant selection of poses and tuition from a professional artist mean this is a great way to hone your skills.

This video mimics the structure of a traditional life drawing class. You will see three photographs to draw or paint from: one for 10 minutes, one for 20 and one for 30. Raw Umber tutor Lizet Dingemans will be doing an online demonstration next to the video and will be giving hints and tips in the live chat.
