I made a somewhat rusty but very enjoyable return to life-drawing last night after almost four months of enforced abstinence. The period since Christmas has been pretty relentless illustration-wise and most activities not directly work-related have had to sit it out on the back burner. It actually felt quite symbolic, going along to SCAC for a Tuesday-night session again; at last, I’m out of the woods.
The model was Betty Page-lookalike Kate Shields, more alabaster and sharply monochrome than ever against the black satin drapes. I was feeling distinctly out-of-practice but here are a few of the results anyway.
Afterwards, spent an exceedingly pleasant couple of hours in the pub with the usual suspects talking art, life and the wonders of East-European dentistry (see Paul Cemmick’s blog for clarification). It’s good to be back.
