I’m back into life drawing at Adrian Duttons classes in Bethnal Green, partly because I’m lazy and it’s a two minute walk away but mainly because in the words one of my fellow MA graduates ‘he is the real deal’.

Adrian runs both a drop in weekly and a back to basics series of classes, details of which are on the Meet Up web site for those interested.

I’m also participating in UPside an exhibition at the Medcalf on Exmouth Market which will be starting in September.

The images above are from the second session I went to and although I have some misgivings about them I am getting a feel for how my line works. I’ve abandoned the pen in favour of the more flexible pencil although I’m now attacking the page like they were a pen.

In the 1 hour drawing I used a rubber for both creative and correctional efforts and am enjoying what it brings to the process.

I hope these inspire you to get out there and draw. I love life drawing because the timed poses mean you always walk away with a good selection of images from every session.
