life drawing classes

Is the human form the oldest object of artistic endeavour?

This painting was done in a drop in life drawing class in the Midlands Arts Centre http://www.macarts.co.uk/.  The group was led by Paul Bartlett.  Briony (thanks for allowing me to post this image) is a great model.

My style is haphazard – building the initial shapes in acrylic ink then overlaying that in gouache.  I started in the middle and found I had no space for her head by the time I reached the edge of the paper.
