I went for my first ever life drawing session a couple weeks ago. These are 10-15min poses. It was terrifying drawing with a time limit at first but I adjusted.
My wrist was hurting drawing with a pencil so I bought some conte for the male session. I’m really liking conte, even the fact that I can’t erase. It stops me from not moving on and spending forever fixing stuff, which I have a tendency of doing if I was allowed to. Although once I was in the zone, I stopped actively thinking and just drew. Before I knew it there was a drawing in front of me!
