Quick 5 minute warm up sketches
Final 45 minutes pose
I went to my first Life Drawing class in about 4 years the other night, my friend and studio neighbour Wendy Couling has started her new job as Education Officer of the Royal Cambrian Academy so I finally took the plunge and ventured over for the last class of the season, with Academy member David Chapman leading the class.
I have to admit I felt very rusty to start with, and some of the warm-up sketches really frustrated me, but after a few poses I'd loosened up and remembered just how much I love life drawing! After a short break it was time for the longer 45 minute pose, which I really enjoyed - credit is due here to the model Jan for lying perfectly still! By the time I was happy with overall proportions and lay-out I started to resolve some issues [mainly with the feet] it was then David informed us we only had 5 minutes remaining!#! I could of sat there drawing the whole night, but alas all good things come to an end!
Classes will restart in the New Year so keep an eye out for listings on the RCA website
