I attended a figure drawing session with my friend Eric. The model was quite good and ended up with a few interesting gestures. I always find that the shorter poses produce the best results. When it comes to the 20 minutes poses, I get finicky and am no longer responding to the moment. The end result is a chaotic, disharmonious mess. I have remedied this by breaking the 20 minute poses into several shorter drawings.
