Thanks for the post EMCee
"My goals for drawing from life?" - I use life drawing sessions to revisit, refresh and hopefully, improve my drawing skills. If I am struggling with my paintings, I can usually trace it back to poor drawing, so I go back to the basics of drawing to bring things back up. I usually go for a few weeks then take a break from it for a while. To be honest though, it is still one of the things I enjoy most about my art. Getting together with a bunch of artists, talking, drawing, associating with them - It's usually a great time.
