The Illustration Friday theme this week is “Pet Peeve.”
I have taken many art classes over the years and I especially liked the Head Drawing class I was in. The teacher was great and I did learn a lot. Unfortunately, we couldn’t readily get models for the class. So we had to take turns posing as many times as necessary for the other students to draw.
This consisted of sitting in a straight chair, usually not that comfy, with a dazzling spotlight shinning in your face and eyes for approximately 30-45 minutes. At the end of each session, you would be treated to a spectacle of varying degrees of drawings of yourself, which according to the talent or lack thereof of each student, could be somewhat strange and a little disconcerting. Of course after doing it for awhile you got used to seeing yourself through a variety of eyes. Which I guess is not entirely bad.
And if you are like me, sitting before a group of people with a bright lite shining in your eyes for 30+ minutes and being stared at closely is not my idea of a good time,
