This is the year that I have resolved to look after my drawing. Coddle it. Fertilise it. Erm, make sure it wears a hat when it goes out into the cold?
Life drawing is an important part of that, and something I have been away from for too long. Fortunately, as part of my membership of the Brighton Illustrators’ Group, I get a free monthly session.
Two hours passed far too quickly. Jolly music, a skilled model, and lots of memories (I used to model in the same room when I first moved to Brighton, many many years ago).
Now I’m terribly afraid that monthly won’t be enough. It was as I scratched out my very last picture of the night (the one at the top of this post) that I felt I was on to something. And then it was time to go home.
