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.

Just stumbled across your blog. It's fabulous!
The drawings are good husband did a life drawing class just recently and enjoyed the chance to sit and draw without distraction. I like to draw too, but my family keeps me so busy and my head is always too full to concentrate!
