I adored life drawing in university, and after a year or two of absolutely none of it, I thought it about bloody time that I did some again. So I’ve been to a couple of sessions with the Cardiff Life Model Collective, and oh I am enjoying it so much! And so nice to not have a tutor spying over you shoulder…. I am quite sure that there is nothing more interesting to draw than another human being. Screw you still lifes and landscapes! The following drawings are mostly A3 in size, all done with black fine liners, and maybe a bit of biro. Have decided I do not like drawing with pencils at all. (Am building up the courage to take a bottle of ink and some pens and brushes, but I fear I may make a horrible mess….) Poses range from 3 to 20 minutes.
