It has been almost three years since I was last in a life drawing class. In France I tried to stay sharp drawing people on the street or at the beach but there's nothing quite like a good life drawing session. I've really missed a weekly work-out in the drawing gym but boy did I feel rusty!
I've found a great class in Bristol where there are 5 models all evening- alternating poses between 5 minutes to an hour. It's the biggest class I've ever been to- there must have been close to 50 artists!
The drawings shown here were all 5 minute poses. Struggling with the time limit, materials & finding a good vantage point I found myself falling back on 'comfort' drawing tricks. I've signed up for 10 weeks so I hope to break out of those old habits.
Will, who organizes the class, has a blog here.
