Figure drawing session...

Figure drawing is like exercising, when you stop practicing you loose it. The day you pick it up again you are stiff, unconfident and slow. At the end of the session you might get some fluidity back but far from how you have felt in the past. Your line work looses refinement and expression, you have a hard time with proportions, speed and focus. Drawing figures, or from life in general, has to be a regular discipline like any other serious occupation you might have. Today was for me one of those stiff days after a too long break.
