Hadn’t been to a figure drawing session in months and had the itch, so I sort of went on a rampage this past week and did two of them. Tuesday at the Society of Illustrators (live jazz!), and then Sunday at Dr. Sketchy’s (circusy burlesque performances!).
Quick one and two-minute poses always got on my nerves during school because they just felt like wasting paper, but now I just draw them all on top of each other and find it both useful for warming up and soothing, in a destructive kind of way.
