Model Tracy – 15 minute pose. Copyright Dennis Mealor 2014.

Had a great night at Life Drawing Class tonight – at Art Plus studio/art shop in town (Bundaberg). I go every fortnight. It is a non-tutored class, where the artists just turn up with their art paraphernalia, and draw. Sometimes I think I am going backwards with it – but the main thing is, to keep at it. Going every two weeks means you are doing art regularly, and no “canvas block” allowed. You just have to get stuck into it, and beat to the alarm clock. This drawing was done with a 15 minute time limit. The medium is oil-pastels and 2B pencil on acid free paper. This was Tracy’s second time modelling and I found her inspiring. Nice curves to draw, but also, she has a rapport with the artists – and some humorous banter. Makes the night more enjoyable. Of course, for our bargain $12, we all help ourselves to white or red wine, and at half time we get pizza! Great value indeed. We had about 8 artists there for the last night of the season. Usually about 10, so was a good turn-out for this time of year.
