I recently I came upon this old A4 sketchbook from when I used to go to life drawing in the late '80s and early '90s. It wasn't a class as such, as there was no actual tutor; we all just chipped in with suggestions for the models, and the poses ranged from 5 to 25 mins. These are from 3 different evenings using a range of different media including charcoal, pastels, conté crayon, pencil, even thick gold pen (top left). Sometimes I enjoyed it there, but towards the end I was getting bored as I felt I needed some kind of direction. Hence I went less and less until I completely forgot about going altogether. I've many more good examples created on those evenings, and at spin-off groups, in an old art bag in the cupboard which I should dig out when I have a moment. Many are large format paint sketches. I often wonder if I should find another class near home and see if I am still as good...!
