Finally - I got to particpate in a figure drawing session!

Tonight I got to take part in my first ever figure drawing session!

All of these years I have done art, gone to art school and so on and I never had a figure or life drawing class before.

I have been wanting to do this for the past few years but none were close enough to make it convenient for me.  But the Art Guild/Gallery hosted a session tonight and it looks like this will likely become a once a month thing.

Some of the quicker timed posed sketches are at the bottom - we got 2 mins each for several.  Then it was moved up to 5min each.  And the last two (with her sitting in the chair) were 25 min each.  She changed costumes midway through the 2 hour session as well.

Those two hours FLEW by.  It was so much fun!  I have a whole lot more practicing to do but I felt good that i know exactly what i need to do to improve and it will just take practice to get there.
