I really enjoyed my life drawing session the other night at the National Portrait Gallery. I realised that neglecting my life drawing would be like a musician only performing and never practicing (which I have been told my my practice obsessed boyfriend is a very bad thing indeed). Drawing from imagination and photographs is certainly practical, but nothing beats real life drawing for truly understanding pose, gesture and perspective.
Here are a some places you can drop in and draw. I certainly intend on checking a few of these out.
