Life drawing last night

I haven’t been to a life class in ages. And I didn’t enjoy it. I was ill-prepared and rushed. When it goes well I arrive early, I am focused on which media I’m going to use and the model poses in a position that makes interesting shapes from my viewpoint. I dashed in at the last minute having grabbed the nearest art materials after having fed and washed up for the family. Emanuella is the most beautiful of models and I really didn’t do her justice.

looks pretty good to me. Still unwinding but getting there.

Hi Julie, I know how life drawing can be like this sometimes but it makes the sessions that do go well even better doesn't it? from an outsider's point of view it's a lovely painting!

Thanks Penny. Looking forward to seeing your photos posted.

Of course you're right Jessie and looking back at my old sketches I've had some much worse days so it all adds to the learning process.
