On Saturday I signed up for one of the National Gallery of Scotland's Life Drawing Classes. I have never done any life drawing before - I rarely draw people at all in fact - and it was something that I have wanted to try and thought that I could learn from. It was a two hour class and we drew the model in four poses - two standing, and the same sitting pose twice. We were working purely in charcoal which is also not a medium that i have used very often at all. Very quick and intense and very tiring! I enjoyed it a lot though and will almost certainly be going back at some point.
