Life Drawing

Weekly life drawing sessions started today at college. That meant about twenty of us standing at easels in a room on the top floor, next to the vasty fine arts studio *. The tutor gave some instruction - including limbering up physically at the start - and the model gave us poses of increasing duration - from thirty seconds to forty minutes, over two and a half hours.

That length of time is helpful and I'm looking forward to seeing the difference in my style at the end of the four weeks. I got all the angles and proportions wrong some of the time but the tutor liked the way that I draw.

Here is my final piece of the session.

* My illustration project is heading in a Shakespearean direction.
