Life drawing

 
Years ago I would attend a life drawing class weekly, but with work and altered scheduled, there just was not time to do so or sessions were not available when I was.  


Now that I'm not tied to a 9 - 5 job anymore, the world of life drawing has reopened and this week I attended two sessions, one with a clothed model the other unclothed.   I forgot how good it is to draw from life in a group setting.  The slight movements and changes in pose, light changes and atmosphere all contribute to the challenge.  From one minute poses to more substantial 30 minute poses, it was good to flex that muscle again.

very nice sketches :)

I miss life drawing, only had a week of it this year, (and thats actually more than most people in the year had). hopefully if I get into something next year, I will have more classes. If not I'm going to have to see when the ones in Dundee are or take a leisure class

I enjoy life drawing too. Pity you don't get more of it class, but there are usually some local sessions happening if you search around.
