Life drawing

I am just back from the college shop, my pockets bulging with brand new bottles of bright inks. I also picked up a graphite stick on the recommendation of my tutor in Life Drawing yesterday. It’s essentially a pencil but totally made of lead and no wood. It gives a greater variety of marks because you can draw with the whole of the top rather than just a small point.

Some of you will remember my feelings about Life Drawing. It’s like eating your greens. The thought of brussel sprouts is always so much worse than they really are. Then all of a sudden you’re an adult who actually quite likes her greens. Yesterday’s session was great. Our lecturer projected maps, writing and sketches onto the model. I enjoyed how the images bent over the contours of the model’s body, stretching and condensing the lines and shapes.
