Back to Drawing!

I thought I'd missed last friday's life drawing session having been caught up in the flight cancellation fiasco but I found out today that this was the first one of the term today, so I've not missed anything!
It's been an age since I've done any drawing from observation and many weeks since the last life drawing session. I enjoyed using the watercolour pencils, I did do another painting with them but I didn't scan it and show it here because I'd nearly made a whole through the paper getting it too wet so it was a little bit of a mess. I really ought to take some decent paper along with me next time instead of lazily using my (cheapish) sketchbook!
Have a happy bank holiday weekend, hope it's not too wet!

Oooo...gorgeous drawing, Jess! I can't remember the last time I did something like this... hhm, I'm getting all rusty, heheehee.

By the way, thanks for voting. Just curious, though? Did you sign up first? See, some votes got bounced back and I think it's because they didn't sign up. Well, I appreciate it all the same, luv! oxx

It's so good to see your life drawing class results each time and how your have changed your art.
Maybe clothes come eventually. As we a people person, it's faces and bodies. I know exactly what you mean I do the same.
Hope your having a great week!
