Life Drawing!

Today I attended my first figure drawing course! A group called "Sketchy Doodle" meets about every week to draw something. This week they hired a model to stand in different poses in Victorian dress. The timing was five 2-minute poses, two 5-min poses, two 10-min poses, and finally two 20-minute poses. What I really focused on was folds in her dress and the general poses/proportions. I had a great time with he sitting STILL. The 2-minutes were too fast, but I started losing attention at the 20-minutes. Sometimes they do full 2-hour poses, and I wonder what my discipline will be for that. I haven't tried for detail like that!
