What is Life Drawing?

Life drawing, also known as figure drawing, is the act of drawing a living person. Normally this means drawing a nude model in real life – i.e. not from a photograph or from memory or imagination.. Capturing the human form has been a very important and fascinating topic to artists for centuries, drawing from life helps the artist understand and learn how to capture the proportions of the anatomy, and this is a vital part of most human portraiture and figure drawing.
