Life Drawing

I've been going to a local life drawing class run by my artist friend, Richard, at his studio since last November time and have been plodding along trying different media...charcoal, coloured pencil, pencil, pen and, most recently, PanPastels. I tried ordinary pastels way back before Christmas but didn't get on very well with them at all but these pastels are something else, they're really smooth and soft, easy to apply and I'm really enjoying using them. I'm no pastel artist nor am I much cop at the life drawing itself but I enjoy going and think I'm making a tiny bit of progress and I intend to plough on and try to keep improving little by little. These are three of my drawings using the pastels:

Looks great - the back view is especially good. I could do with some life drawing - would improve my observation skills no end...

Sharon, if it's not too far for you Richard has space in the class. It's a Monday evening 7 til 9 at his studio in Chatteris. Would be great to see you there! ;o)
