Just got back from … (you should know the rest by now) … Life Drawing Evening Class!
And … oh wonder of wonders … the model didn’t show up.
I mean … why go to Nude Classes and have no nude there?
I seriously considered taking my shirt off, but didn’t bother mentioning it.
(Thank the maker! I was embarassing enough tonight, without acting like the narcistic d**khead I obviously am.)
Still – even w/o me baring my chest – we had a very enjoyable evening drawing our mentor … who of course couldn’t come round and watch his fledglings’ attempts at sketching the human figure.
Three students were brave enough to climb the stage and stand their 15 minutes.
I had chosen the following weapons for tonight:
- Lamy Safari “F” nib with Royal Blue ink
- Seawhite of Brighton, A5 sketchbook (my “show-off” book)
- preselection of Polychromos colour pencils (grey, 2 blues, red, magenta, green, flesh, pink)
And then the following pictures appeared one after another … any likeness with real living people is just coincidence.
I had fun and I’m looking forward to this happening again soon … no nudes …
