Pushing the boundaries (again!)

Opportunities to join a life-drawing class are few and far between (well, in my world they have been) so I jumped at the chance to join a course at the Oak Room in Tiverton.  Last Tuesday evening we were challenged with a series of short poses (two minutes each) which encouraged us to go for shapes rather than detail and get some energy into our work.  Then we explored a concept that was new to me – blind contour drawing – where we drew the outline of our subject without looking at the paper.  We had some interesting results!  We finished with a couple of longer poses (20 minutes) and I was encouraged by how much my work has developed over recent months.
