Looking at Rubens... last week's life class

Last Wednesday, our model was Ed. We looked at pen and ink studies by Leonardo Da Vinci as inspiration for the quick poses and then at some wonderful Rubens drawings for the longer poses. Ed very kindly offered to do a long 1 hour standing pose, something we have never had in the sessions before. This gave everyone the chance to look closely at the muscle definitions on the body and to draw them over a sustained period.
