One minute studies

A couple of linear nude studies (A4 pencil on paper) made in London in 2000 and finally exhibited and sold in Nicosia in 2005. If memory serves, these two are the same model and occasion. This was John Crossland's studio at the Hampstead Art School, where the model would "perform" a string of thirty one-minute poses just before the break. It was amazing - unique to that studio - and a pure flow that cleared your head of everything except drawing. I have never found anything to compare with it since.

Nice. Maybe we could also start with one minute poses.
