Back from the dead - with life drawings !

Heya. I know, I know. It's been an age.

It was looking like I had wandered off and found something else.

But no such luck. It was just a combination of work away from home, and a new laptop, and no scanner.

So I need to kick things off again.

Went to the Spirited bodies Life drawing session in Holborn last night.

It was brilliant. it challenged my usual, possibly even lazy preconceptions about how I draw the figure.

You were stumped as to where to start with so many models posing together. And I did get lost in some of the set-ups, and the sketches almost make no sense out of context, so I'm keeping them in the sketch book.

But I did take the easy way out and just pick one figure to draw on a few of the poses.

Think the front arm is a bit off, feels it should be longer, but the shoulder was being held quite high. Not sure. On it's own it feels right, but overall it feels out.

Anyway, highly recommend this life class, if anyone is London based and looking.

More tomorrow.


  1. Yay! You're back. And that lady's front. What a great combo!

  2. Hmm yes, it's all getting a bit NSFW isn't it ?

    It's ART love, ART.

  3. That's what the Victorians said and look what happened to them.
