Revisiting life drawing

I went life drawing (with a nude model) a couple of days back for the first time since graduating! It was great! I could feel the rust chipping off my fingers as I tried to identify anatomy and understand the figure. The model was great, very pixie-esque. She did lively, dynamic, gesture oriented poses, except the last one, which was the- I'm done with posing for the day so I'll just lie down for ten minutes- pose.

The session took place inside a small room at  the very ritzy/artsy Gladstone Hotel (which has existed for 123 years, the elevator man told me as I rode up with him on a classic 108 year old elevator all the way up to the second floor!), with jazz music playing from a tape recorder in the background.
