Life drawing aids the eye

From the Metaphoratorium Gallery

This is a scanned section of a sketch I did during a studio class with a live model. Have taken quite a few of these helpful sessions, one at Western Conn State University, and several each at Weselyan University (in the GLS program), at Wooster Community Art Center, and also at the Housatonic Art League. The models have been different sizes, sexes, ages and races, in various states of clothed and unclothed. When you are trying to understand the relationships of the different parts of the body and how they move - a live model is priceless. I also like to watch dance classes and dance on TV for the same reason.
