It didn't disappoint.
I was invited to this thing, called Artease, by Facebook friend and fellow Galway Pub Scrawler, Anita McGarry. The initial premise of the event was that it was life drawing and alternative performance dance mixed together. And that was exactly what it was. The first performer/model, Chloe, did a burlesque performance straight off the bat, before posing for us. We started off with ten quick one minute poses before moving on to longer ones.
As I said, it's been a while since I've done life drawing, so those early poses were tough. Very tough. But as I loosened up, I got more confident.
Next we had a gentleman by the name of Willyam take the stage. He had a great figure for drawing, lots of big muscles and oiled skin.
Lastly, a cool woman named Francesca appeared, dressed slightly Gothic, slightly Steampunk, and did some great fifteen minute poses for us.
I want to try out some watercolours next time. I was thinking that maybe I could pre-mix a wash colour and do something with that. We'll see.
Anyway, I had great fun and really cannot wait to do the next event.
Back soon, no doubt.
