I attend a regular life-drawing class at a local art gallery. One hour, a clothed model, a mix of short poses (for warm-ups) and longer ones (for stretching) although most poses are no longer than 30 minutes each. It’s a great way to wind down at the end of a day at work.
I’ve been attending this class regularly for over three years now, and used to avoid drawing the model’s face. Looking at these sketches, I still do!
Sometimes my best drawing is one I make in the middle of the session, then my technique falters on the final one, perhaps through over-confidence, or lack of focus. Whatever the outcome, I love the challenge of life-drawing.
