  1. HI
    It’s lovely to see so many of your drawings together but sad that Instagram are behaving like Pope Pius IV and the Council of Trent. The marvel of the 21st century adopts the values of the 16th Century inquisition, How weird is that.

  2. Wonderful drawings! It is inspiring to see artists so passionate about life drawing, especially in age where people (such as at Facebook and Instagram) would have you believe the human form is inherently evil. Keep sharing your work. There are plenty of people who appreciate it and love it as you do.

  3. Your drawings are amazing! I can’t believe your Instagram account would be disabled, that’s ridiculous.

    I did a life drawing course and one week arrived late (due to work) but when I walked in I discovered the boy I usually sat next to was the model. I had a sudden and terrifying thought that perhaps we were supposed to be taking it in turns! (We weren’t, thankfully).

    1. Hi Tara,thanks for visiting and for your comments. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t go to life drawing if you had to take a turn as the model :/
      A few months ago, our model couldn’t make it because of the bus strike so the guy who organises the group stepped in. He did a great job, but it does make you realise how easy the regular models make it look! Aside from the obvious issues with being naked in front of people, there is no way I would be able to stay still for that long! 🙂

  4. Nude? I had to scroll up and down twice to find which image was offensive- NONE! I miss Life Drawing, I especially love drawing Nude Females. You’ve motivated me to pick my pencil again and draw! Thanks! #Suzie81SpeaksPartyGuest

    1. Oh thank you for visiting 🙂 I’m slowly working my way through the list at Suzie’s party too… Lots of interesting new people to discover.
      I really hope you can make that happen. Such a great thing to do. x

  5. It is amazing to me what people choose to judge about and find offensive. Honestly, if you aren’t comfortable with the human body…you’ve got issues! Your drawings are beautiful, intimate, and powerful.

  6. Porn is not the same thing as expressing naked emotions. And the emotions came through quite well.

    Hey, as I told a TSA lady who kept apologizing as she was patting me down, “I’ve been married 5 times hain’t nothin’ on my body that ain’t been touched.” I thought she was going to fall over laughing. 🙂

    1. Hello, I love your blog – glad to have found you. Thanks for coming to read mine.
      I am also surprised by the differences n what I produce from week to week, I have not yet settled on any one approach, but I think this is part of what I am enjoying so much about the process – what am I going to create during this session?

  7. I love this post, the way you describe your love of drawing makes me wish I had something I was that passionate about in my life…everyone should. At least then I could stare creepily at people with a reason! How funny that someone thought you were and the way you describe solving a puzzle is fascinating. Bah as for the Instagram thing…you’re back on now aren’t you?…but so bizarre. Sooo many offensive things on the Internet…often just in the adverts at the bottom of blog posts…and this in NOT one of them!

  8. I so wasn’t expecting you to say that. Your art is stunning and you are incredibly talented. Allowing ourselves to draw is a gift that we should all do more often. You certainly should, you are very talented. I am staggered by Instagram #abitofeverything

  9. None of your drawings are offensive. They are all tasteful and the rudey bits aren’t on show. I admire your talent. I’m rubbish at drawing. It’s great that you have found something that you love so much and can do every week! #abitofeverything

  10. I was initially really surprised at your being suspended from Instagram, but the more I think about it rhe less I am. Not that I think you should have been, your drawings are fabulous (i especially like the simole line drawing of the lady sat down) but because some people will always find the human body and pictures of it as something that should be hidden. Idiots!
    Thanks for sharing this post and your artwork with us, Tracey xx #abitofeverything
