Figure drawings

Encouraged by others in the EDM group, I have started attending figure drawing sessions. I have a long way to go, but there are glimpses of hope. You can, at least, recognize a person!
The total session lasts three hours. We start with 2 minute drawings and end with one long pose that lasts about 35-40 minutes. 

Also, there has been discussion about scanning graphite drawings. Finally I paid attention to the options on the screen before I scanned and voila! the drawings are darker, easier to see. I continue to learn. Thanks for discussing this topic.

Good job. I don't know if I could get over being too prudish to go to a life drawing class.
