Tonight was obviously polling night for the election and so it was really difficult to park. That kind of stress you really don't need when going into a life drawing session. So I wasn't suprised it took me a while to warm up.
Tinight's model was Martina Chereli. The third and last - pencil sketch I was pleased with - which is the first to show.
pencil sketch - 35 minutes
the others were just sketches as I was getting warmed up -

So here are some sketches of Carolyne I have done mainly using pencil instead of my normal preferred method of pen. Normally I like pen because the permanence of it means that I concentrate a lot more before my hand touches the paper. It is like the extra adrenaline of avoiding a solid mistake helps the hand-eye co-ordination. Lately though I have had a wanting to go back to pencil so that I can go more for accuracy rather than spontaneity.

Last night's attempt - I say attempt as I found it difficult to get into the flow. My right-hand kept cramping up. I am not too displeased with this one though - which is about all I can say. It happens! Model is Cat

So it has been a while since I was back in Norwich for a life drawing session at the Quaker Hall. Not much has changed though and this time it was the turn of a familiar model Beth Reeks - with her normal falpper style.
