When I try drawing from life I always find it difficult, where as when I draw from a picture I find it a lot easier. I cant say that I have drawn much from life at all though, so I was wondering it is actually harder? Or if its just because I haven't done it as much as drawing from a picture?

I mean I cant say I'm good at drawing from a picture, because... well i'm pretty bad at drawing at the moment... but I'm relatively better at it in comparison to drawing from life.

I'm basically just interested in what makes drawing from life different from drawing from a picture, I can't figure out why there is a difference just that there is one.
