Weekend Workshop with Karl Gnass

These are drawings from a weekend workshop with the legendary Karl Gnass. This workshop was quite a challenge because the longest poses we had were fives. Most of the poses were one or two minutes. Not a lot of time to capture everything.

Ironically the drawings I liked most from the day came from an exercise I like to call the "Ghost Pose." In Ghost Pose, the model poses for 3 seconds, you observe, and then the model rests for 57 seconds, and you have less than a minute to draw from memory what you just saw. So 3 seconds of observation, 57 seconds of drawing. It was a bit nerve racking, but also pretty fun. 


  1. I am not sure if you checked, but a guy in our class did, and did you know we did a grand total of 75 drawings that day!? Isn't that crazy? Didn't even feel like it, either :)

  2. Wow, that is kind of nuts! It was a great workshop! and Sarah was wonderful as usual.
