life drawing

(11x15)
Joined a life drawing group last night: they meet once a month for four hours. I only made it through three before I was too exhausted to go on.
The models were a husband and wife, but in these 20-minute poses, I left him out.
It felt very awkward and difficult drawing a live model after having not done it for several years, but the challenge is one of the appealing things about it. After trying so hard, I can only get better (right?).

Did you draw and then put in the watercolor wash? I think yiu have something going here and hope you can continue with the sessions - I would be proud of either of them but the top one is my favorite.

I was doing 3 hr classes and they were exhausting. You did beautiful figures after not doing them for a long time.

Lovely sketches Laura. Four hours is a killer. The sessions I attend during the summer are three hours, and I usually leave after two. That's all I can endure!

Wow! you have been busy since the April workshop! I like your flowers, but I LOVE the life drawing sketches!! How fun drawing with your brush. I also like what you painted at the Mel Stabin Workshop. Did you enjoy Mel as much as Carol? What was different?

I am just getting started now that school is out. My goal is three paintings this summer. I hope I reach it :)
