It's been a really long time since I had a chance to go to life drawing. I decided to drag my tush to the class and had a really great time!
I recall during school how important it was for me to have a nice drawing at the end of class. I was always trying to emulate the teacher or the other great students in my class, but I think that because of that I didn't learn as much as I could have from life drawing. Instead of focusing on finding forms and rhythms, I was always just trying to make my drawings look like "that guy's" Today I decided to go into class just trying to learn and doing my own thing without worrying about a nice drawing that looked like anyone else's, and things worked out quite well! I both had decent drawings and I learned, and I had fun!
