2nd entry for May 14, 2009

My arriving late also meant I wasn't in my accustomed place. I was wondering as I worked that perhaps the responses I have built up in drawing these ultra-short poses were perhaps dependent on very controlled conditions. I think that is likely part true; the most information can be set down when everything is in its most familiar configuration. But some of that carries over into any drawing I do, I believe.

After a long break, P- did a series of 5 and 10-minute poses on a combination of hoop and trapeze. As before when this has been used, I liked the mix of round and straight-line elements framing the figure. Towards the evening's end I was finding my bearings, but it wasn't a banner drawing night. Ah, well....
