Back to life drawing last night. This time our model brought a few props. It was interesting to see how each artist dealt with it - some making them the focal point, some ignoring them altogether. The drawings that (for me) had the biggest impact were the ones where things like boots and hair colour affect the mood of the model, and it's the mood that we're looking at, not the 'stuff'. That's where I'd like to get to. I so love these sessions. Have I mentioned that before?
