By the time of the next member message I will have experienced my first life drawing studio session in about 25yrs. This studio has a single model pose for 3 hours. I’ve been mapping out in my head exactly what I’m going to do for that time period. Most attendees will be using paint but I will more than likely just use graphite or possibly charcoal.
My question: Most life drawing sessions have a model that does several short poses before a long pose. In mine, it’s one 3 hr pose. How can I best utilize that time? Should I do a few short sketches and work up to a longer (and slower) drawing? What do you suggest?
Yes, I am getting a little anxious.
