Last week’s figure drawing model was awkward and a little shy, and seemed pretty new to the whole posing thing, but one of the last poses of the session she struck this banal pose—honestly, my favorite kind to draw—and suddenly took on a regal mien.

I think some times about starting a Boring Figure Drawing group. Just regular people, all shapes and sizes, fully clothed, sitting in chairs. Drawing beautiful naked women has gotten pretty boring. I want to draw some fat old men. I want to draw middle-aged women with beak noses wearing clothes with a lot of patterns on them. Dare to dream, Young Artist!
