Re: Crimes against Art.

Sorry for being confusing, Dave. I was talking about the portrait. The shadows on her skin to the right (our right) of her jumper is what impressed me.

Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Re: Crimes against Art.

Glad you liked the title Michael for me self criticism is vital, if I was to become complacent about my work that would be the end of what ever progress I’ve made.

Hi Trevor, are you sure it wasn’t the cockeyed models we used to get Do you remember the ones with one leg shorter than the other?

Cheers to you both, Dave

PS Hi Kate thanks for the clarification, you must have posted while I was typing

Sure do remember them Dave we used to get some real strange looking models legs and arms and heads were very strange but they seem to improve slightly as time goes on.
Keep up the record of the strange looking people

Re: Crimes against Art.

@ journey man, thanks for checking out my website. I appreciate it. I took a look at your blog. You certainly do a lot of research for your posts. Very informative.

@ jackiesimmonds, the life drawing sessions I go to a run in a way where the model poses as they like, there usually isn't much direction. Of course the drawing sessions I go to are not classes at all. I actually like that format. Each model has different postures and gestures and carries themselves in a different way. As long as you have a rotation of models (as opposed to drawing the same one all the time) it's nice to just let the model's own natural postures show through.

Re: Crimes against Art.

a model with one leg shorter than the other! Now THERE's a challenge!

I know what you mean about the difficulties of organising life sessions with models letting you down, used to happen regularly to the woman who used to organise a session I used to visit. Must be par for the course.

So...no crimes here...you are doing a grand job, both with your own work and with organising the sessions, which I am sure all your participants must be very grateful for.

Re: Crimes against Art.

The mention of a unidexter for a model is a long running joke withTrevor Jackie
Yes our sessions run very much as Stephanie says, the models are very experienced usually working for more than one venue. They set the poses unless something special is set up as when Helen came dressed as a ballet dancer and we did Degas poses. I book the venue for ten weeks at a time and I will have used six models during the current period.

Thank you all Dave
