A little life drawing: October 2013 meeting

October’s meeting was a creative affair with each of us picking up our charcoal and pencil for a little life drawing. The lovely Judy Purbeck warmed us up with a few quick 5 minute poses then got us flexing our artistic muscles with some longer poses and teaching us how to use a pencil to help with proportion.

For a bunch of ladies who generally profess a limited artistic flair we ended with some beautiful charcoal drawings – Judy even suggested some of us showed some Matisse-like prowess! Our gorgeous model Louise astonished me with her ability to hold a pose and we were all astonished how relaxing life drawing made us all feel by the end of the meeting. All round a fantastic meeting for an new autumnal evening.
