Byron live studio.
Tried another life drawing group- this time 'Byron live studio'.
I think the trip down and through Byron bay kind of psyched me out a bit on top of the whole getting back to "seeing" (life drawing style) again. (So things are still wonky in the drawing department, plus I was sort of used to drawing on my sketchpad in pen- so using pencil was weird for a while.)
On weekends there's a giant queue of cars to get into Byron,- me trying to take an idiot proof way first time round took this route. Bad idea.
Anyway once there-I was impressed. A really kind and chatty old couple ran the place, and model was great . Plus they had fruitcake.
(although althletic as she was she'd try these neat poses that took a lot of strength-so she'd move quite a lot in these- actually she'd make a great sculptural model-very art deco sculpture shape in a way).
The scribbly pen drawing up top wasn't from life drawing - just thought I'd throw that in .
The reclining image head to the right(25min) was the last pose- so as I was finally starting to get it together a bit more, it was time to go.
Next time gadget.
