It’s been a while since I’ve used oil in a life drawing session and I’m really happy with this first of two sessions.
I even drew with a brush after our 2 minute gesture poses. The one thing that I noticed that was much different that most of all my drawing sessions was I was working my arm muscles much more than normal. Normally when I’m drawing I can rest my hand on my board while I draw. When I’m painting at home I work so small I can rest my hand on my board here sometimes also. But for the life drawing painting today I had no support for my right arm at all so I was feeling that ache of muscle tension for most of the session. It’s a nice clear indication of something that I can work on.
