summer figure drawing

From summer 2011 life drawing drop-in classes.

Dropped in to my first local weekly figure drawing group tonight. Started off with 30 second poses and eventually got up to 10 minutes. Usually I spend hours and hours on one figure, so this is a good challenge for me. Definitely plan to make this a habit.

Before the drawing session I hit up the used bookstores and scored these fine things:

Moebius 6, Kabuki - Skin Deep, and Arthur Rackham Shakespeare illustrations

Also, found out I got an A- in a class I was worried I wouldn’t pass at all. And then improvised the most delicious mushroom vermouth cream sauce for my pasta dinner. And had strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar for dessert.

Today was pretty awesome. 😀
