My first life drawing class

Today was my first real life drawing session. It was fantastic! We had a great model, and it was a real luxury to have lots of time to draw the figure. I learned a LOT. It was great being with other artists who are serious about figure drawing.

We started off with one-minutes poses and graduated to three-, five-, and twenty-minute poses. I' still learning how to keep the proportions right. Takes a lot of guessing, trying a line, re-establishing the line. Then there's shading, which I was just guessing at. So much fun!
