Back at the class after a two week break. I like these classes because you just pay for when you attend, which has saved me a lot. I always miss sessions for various reasons.
We had a lovely model who not only looked great, but was at least as old as me. I love confident people who are happy to flaunt whatever they have. She had on a pair of “racy” red stockings which she thought might add a little life to things. I think they did. She held one pose for the whole session, with only one break. Remarkable. I did two drawings from the front, displaying my usual ability not to fit everything onto the page.
I moved around in the second half for two side on sketches, but I think I was losing it somewhat. Drawing for two hours after work is quite tiring.
I missed last weeks class, but back this week for a good model. I amazed that the class leader finds so many different models so easily. He says they find him. Seems there are a lot of people who want to earn £12 an hour to stay stock still and be stared at by a group of strangers. It isn’t an easy job and good models are much appreciated.
