This is absolutely wonderful! I enjoyed looking through your blog tonight- your figure studies in watercolor are really inspiring.

What an unusual angle. I wasn't sure where it was all going at first, and has she a scar on one of her cheeks?
I decided to just chuck out 90% of my old life and costume drawings because they are so fussy and tight and were done yonks ago. I put them into the recycle bin so that will give somebody some shock/ or pleasure perhaps when checking through the paper and plastic for recycling!

Dear Julie,
Surprise, surprise its your old friend Shulay. I love this drawing and its made me want to start life drawing again. This forshortened view reminds me of one of my first emotionally charged lessons at art college when the tutor laid in to me for not doing justice to the severe angle of the view. Anyway, I miss you and will phone you soon.
All my love, xxxx Shulay

Thank you Christeen. You are brave Wendy, I feel like my drawings are like children - even the truly dire ones so I find it difficult to throw them away. Shulay, it's really difficult to find affordable life drawing at the right time and place _ I've just googled your area and it looks as though what there is, is during the day - not ideal.
Thank you Alison, of course the angle is never of my choosing, it's down to what the model chooses to do (no room to move around once you've found a place at the beginning of the class)
