Back to Life.

My first life drawing class since c.1973. I’ve obviously drawn friends and girlfriends in the long interim since, but never taken part in a formal group session. So I approached this “return to class” with some trepidation. For two reasons: Firstly, I’m not enthusiastic about making art in the company of others unless it is as part of a collaboration. Secondly, would I be any good? Would I measure up to the “competition”?

In the event I am well please with the outcome. Thoroughly enjoyed the intense three hour experience, the challenge it presented, and I think my work certainly stood up to that produced by anyone else there.
