I recently started going to evening life drawing sessions at Morley College. Although I draw and paint all the time, working directly from a life model was something I hadn't really done since studying illustration at Middlesex.
Life drawing is a discipline of its own, and I think doing this has helped me try out new things in my work.
I was really pleased to hear that the picture below was selected to be exhibited as part of an upcoming 'Made at Morley' show. Funnily enough, I used to draw the model - Clive - at Middlesex. I thought his pose here along with the backdrop made him look a bit like a snoozing king on his throne.
The exhibition opens to the public from February 26th to 21st March.
