I am practicing my watercolour and drawing. Here are three I have done the last 2 days. I am trying to make people not look so static. Hard to do in my opinion. Guess I need to take some life drawing classes, I haven’t done any in a long time.
A few funny situations regarding life models… (names have been omitted to protect the innocent) –
A friend took a life class and during the break, the young male model came up to her and said “Hi, remember me? I was in high school with your daughter.”
While at a party, another artist was asked out by a model she had drawn a year or so prior. Although flattered, she declined the offer.
I was in the store and went to checkout and recognized the woman working there. Guessing she looked more familiar to me than I did to her. I had painted her a few times, with and without clothes.
You can probably get use to it, but having grown up in a very modest household I am not sure I will live long enough to handle with ease the awkwardness an encounter with a naked person brings. Really good thing I didn’t decide to be a doctor.
