Life Drawing at St Ives School of Painting

Mary Trapp a neighbour and artist is studying at the art school and asked if I'd like to come along to the life class at St Ives. The St Ives School of Painting is about an hour or so from where we live, so it is a bit of an effort to get there, but it was worth the effort. What an amazing and exhausting evening we had..
5, 4, 3, 2 and one minute poses. What a great exercise..
 Artist Steve Dove led the class with a gentle touch..
 This is my favorite drawing of the evening.
