I spent half an hour each day last week following a life drawing class on TV; the class was led by an artist, who provided a running commentary and tips, and general views on life drawing, the universe and everything. I found the whole thing hugely enjoyable; I've done life drawing at school and since, but never nudes, so was a new experience for me. These are the better ones - I found the men easier to draw than the women, and much preferred the black ink pen to the pencil (which I was forced to use when Bean purloined my pens for a couple of days). I enjoyed the discipline of having to sit and draw for half an hour, and stuck with it. I'm no MIchaelangelo, but I got a lot out of it. Will need to make more time for drawing, and get back into painting too.
