Life drawing

To supplement the lack of human figures in my subject, I will be attending life drawing classes. Went to the class at uni last Monday. Poor effort I think! Wooden and lifeless which is not the aim! Going to try a life drawing class in Stamford which will be more convenient.

We are lucky enough to have Alexis Deacon as one of our tutors. Was very inspired by looking at Alexis's sketchbooks...his life drawings almost have a Renaissance qualty to them...small, delicate and animated...full of character. Can't wait to have another go!
