There use to be a life drawing group in town for quite a number of years but I always struggled with getting to the class very often.  I found a great on-line website that allows me to take a 1/2 hour and draw the human form.  My little room mates go to bed and my painting studio is downstairs where I have to close the door and put a heater on intermittently to keep the room comfortable.  So Friday night I remembered the site.  I spent a 1/2 hour sketching and best of all I was where I could hear the girls (just in case).

Thirty seconds drawings require a great deal of practice.  I find I don’t have time to look at the paper much.  These are all incomplete because I haven’t practiced much.

One minute gives enough time to get the body done and to glance at the page a couple of times.

Now the time is far more reasonable.  There is enough time to slowly create the lines, the connections, the angles.

When I would make it to the local figure drawing group I would use a pencil…nervous to “make a mistake”.  Now I use ink knowing that I don’t plan to show these and it is alright just do make the lines permanent.
