Life Drawing Continues

Our local life drawing group has not met since last March because of the Covid-19 pandemic. I’m happy to report that yesterday we started our weekly drawing sessions again. Many of us have not done figure drawing from life for over a year and were worried that we might have lost the knack for doing it in all that time. Those fears seem to have been misplaced because everyone in the group came up with some good drawings and we had a very positive session.

We usually start with five minute drawings to warm up and to focus on capturing the gesture of the model’s pose. Then we do some longer poses of 20-25 minutes aiming for a more finished result.
