I totally relate to being an introvert and not enjoying a room full of strangers and/or having to ‘be creative’ under that kind of pressure. Fortunately, I have learned to work my way around this and ’embrace my introvert qualities’;-) I have been to this open life drawing class a few times last year. I know the organiser a bit, that helped … And the setup is right up my street: max 8 people, all serious about their art and commitment to learn by practicing, working in silence and without a teacher. If you like, you can ask some feedback from your peers, if you don’t you don’t. It’s about 20 minutes by bike, so no real hardship there.
I find that setting a goal helps a lot. For these classes my goal is to do lots of gesture drawings. And if I feel comfortable enough I will try a more detailed sketch.
Most of all I love to be in my studio, in silence (apart from soft music) and all alone all day…March 30, 2017 at 2:26 am #7601
I applaud your willingness to get out there 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
I still haven’t sketched the dog – but i’m going to see if i can catch him napping.
in the mean time imaginary sketches – of the sci-fi genre
can anyone recommend good artists? I’ve come across a lot of names, lots of them seem more fantasy.April 2, 2017 at 1:00 am #7638

Beautiful. Love the way your lines describe the various forms through their directions and how straight vs curved they areApril 22, 2017 at 1:15 pm #8196
Back from vacationing in the mountains – was wet, made my way through lots of briar (now i have a lot of scratches and pinholes on my arms), and managed to find deer and moose tracks
what a great time
