Live Figure Drawing at the Delaware Contemporary

10 minute live model sketch

I had the good fortune to attend a drop in session of live model drawing at the Delaware Contemporary tonight.

It was an eye opener for me (as such things often are). I’d grown comfortable with my figurative stuff since I do it so frequently. The problem is that it’s easy to get formulaic about such things. Familiar poses and elements fall together easilly until you’re doing work where you’re not really challenged.

Then you go to a live model session and realize how broken your skill set is.

I’m really looking forward to the next one. I may have to look for some more sessions closer to my apartment.
