I hadn't done any figure drawing from life in about a year so I was veeeerry rusty. We started off slow with 1-minute gestures--
Before escalating all hardcore-like (at the other students' requests) to 10-minute poses. I didn't expect my first one to hold up well, so I lumped it with the gesture page (also there was just enough room and I'm a cheap-ass, even with newsprint).
After that, it was 20-minute poses for the remainder of the workshop. In an attempt to not get held up in details, I broke the time up into smaller drawings so I can have more chances to, well, mess up. And mess up I did.
Like I said on twitter, I notice I'm much more grounded in art when my practice is punctuated with figure drawing sessions, so I'm looking forward to getting back up to speed again with my work~
