The Groucho Club, London, 1 July 2019

7 Jul 2019

For many years, The Groucho Club existed only in my broad social awareness as a members-only establishment and watering-hole of choice for media people. In spring, however, Figuration successfully organised a brace of life drawing events there, and they were returning for a third visit this summer. I was delighted to be their model.

Upon arrival at the main entrance on Dean Street, Soho, I was given a complimentary drinks token and pointed to a door slightly further along the road. From there a warren of corridors and stairs led me to a large, well-lit event room on the second floor, where Figuration’s Leo was preparing the space. We began at 7pm with six 2-minute poses.

After the opening sequence, two 5-minute poses and two 10-minute poses brought us to an interval, at which point I exchanged my token for a tasty white wine. The session was well attended and exuded positive energy; I gave my dynamic best within an oval of seated artists, while Leo offered just the right measure of encouragement and tips.

To finish, I stood for 20-minutes, sat on the floor for 15-minutes, and finally reclined for 15-minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed every detail; not least the intriguing Spotify playlist, which had been carefully crafted for the occasion, as always, by Figuration’s Roy. The Groucho Club proved a great venue of life drawing. I was impressed. Long may it last.
