Today I went back to Saturday sessions with a live model through Manifest Gallery and their open figure sessions. It's been a while since I was able to attend regularly. It will be good to get back in the groove.
We had a new model today and she was good. I know it had to be rough sitting on that hard stool and balancing on the other - she didn't fall asleep or waver much at all. It was hard for me to draw just the shadow shapes of her face, it was tilted down and so much in shadow.
She held the pose for 20 minutes and then a 5 minute rest and another 20 minutes. I moved to get the second sketch from another angle.
