Well that was awkward...

A while ago me and my mum decided to do a life drawing course, we chose intermediate rather than beginners because we didn't want it to be too easy (bad idea). So anyway we went last night for the first time, got there and it was a class full of men who were all really professional and amazing drawers.

So we sort of stood there, looking awkward, when a wrinkly 70-something year old man came out of the cupboard in a dressing gown and flipflops, stood on the block at the front, took off the gown and just stood there facing everyone, with zero dignity. Of course everyone took it in their stride except us, we just stood at the back giggling and looking embarrassed :/

We soon found out that life drawing is really difficult, the proportions are impossible to get right and according to the tutor we weren't getting the 'flow' of the shapes. So we came home with our confidence knocked, feeling embarrased and with 4 crappy drawings of a naked pensioner. I was gonna put some pics up but I didn't think you'd appreciate Arthur in the nuddy pants.

1 week down, 9 to go, I'll keep you updated!
