I love the social aspect of going to Saturday life drawing at Basis. The people there are so warm and friendly. It’s a shame the lighting in the room is so bad, directional light is almost none existent. It gets better in the spring when natural light replaces the cold and cruel florescent tubes. I try not to let it affect me, this week I focused on line and detail – the shading was secondary. My bad period seems to be lifting, I feel more in harmony with my drawing. Grumpy artist, nothing worse.
