Yesterday we went to a vendors fair just down the road in a nearby town for the day. We sold a couple of books and a few prints and generally had a good day out. For me it was a great opportunity to do some life drawing. I had my sketchbook with me and couldn't help noticing all the terrific poses the people around me were hitting while the were browsing. We have recently returned to traditional life drawing - in a studio with a model - and I was very eager to maintain the drawing momentum with these would be models. Many of the drawings are of women and the simple reason for that is that many of the patrons at this show were women. This is of course fine with me because I find women much more fun and interesting to draw ;) You may have also noticed that many of the poses are seen from the back or side. This is because I like to remain discreet while drawing in public. It's just easier that way - no explanations or apologies.
