It’s nice to be able to draw from the live figure once a week. After a request from another artist last week I agreed to program a reclining nude pose.
I missed the first 20 minutes of gesture warmup poses because I was setting up the refreshments for the other artists, but this is fine. I find it difficult to do gesture poses and time the model at the same time.
I moved around the room several times getting different angles to the pose. I liked my last drawing best as the foreshortening made the pose much more dynamic.
