Sultry Summer Update

August 26, 2015

Another wonderful Life drawing workshop was enjoyed by all last Saturday, with warm weather and beautiful model for the days drawing. We spent the morning working on a multi figured sheet of fifteen minute poses to create an interesting compositional study of perspective and figure placement – a great exercise. Increasing the pose time to 30 minutes then 50 minutes as the day progressed.

The next workshop will be a themed one with the model in costume as the warm weather has now passed its peak, dates yet to be arranged.
