Life Class

A lot of little people have appeared in my collages lately. To counter some of the frustrations I’ve come up against when drawing the figure, I decided to join a life drawing class.

I found the atmosphere very convivial, and at lunchtime we all enjoyed a picnic lunch. Although I felt apprehensive at first, as I’ve only attended life class for two terms about six years ago, I soon relaxed. We drew three different poses. Concentrating for so long is really tiring. When I got home I got my anatomy book out to look at what was underneath the skin and made notes. I love a challenge.
