    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…

    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.

    Beautiful. Love the way your lines describe the various forms through their directions and how straight vs curved they are

    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

    Love the arm, though at the same time it is a bit creepy 😉
