Workers’ playtime, London, 26 September 2018

30 Sep 2018

I’ve been booked many times by Adrian Dutton but always to life model for one of his own groups. This evening, however, would be different as Adrian was tutor and I was his model at a company’s life drawing session in modern offices near Tottenham Court Road. Seven colleagues had stayed after-hours to make art at the end of their working day. We began with one pose of 10-minutes, five of 1-minute, then 5 and 20-minutes.

It was a pleasure to be working with Adrian again and also a relief as he arrived a few minutes late, having been involved in a vehicle collision while on the road into London. Mercifully nobody was injured and, after dealing with the immediate aftermath, he was able to drive on. Such is his natural serenity and composure that we would never have suspected something serious had happened if we were not told.

After a short break we resumed the session with another 10-minute pose, followed by three more of 1-minute, and finally 25-minutes to the end. Camaraderie, good humour, natural talent, and a willingness to learn were all present in the room, which made for an atmosphere that was relaxed yet focused in all the right places. Both my unusual physique and style of poses were respectfully appreciated, so… nice work!
