Life Drawing Classes with Varvara
Here are my unashamed explorations into how to draw naked people, prompted by my return to life drawing classes.
I’m really excited to be able to start drawing again, as our last outings with Pam were sadly cut short after the NFTS couldn’t find vacant rooms for a model in the nip to hang out in. To the staff’s credit I’m really pleased that they could find an external course for me to take (and help with the costs for!).Man it did take a lot of pestering though, another bit of concrete evidence that bloody fisted persistence is the only way forward sometimes!
The illustrious Varvara Neiman of St. Petersburg fires up our winter classes in the local community centre. So far I’ve been tortured by my lack in skill with an eraser, painted in the long shadow of Rembrandt, and discovered a fondness for charcoal shading.
Next term I expect the games course wil have more opportunities for life drawing, until then here are a few of my first attempts this November.
