47/49 Tanner Street, London, 13 November 2019

12 Dec 2019

After a chilly traipse through the dull, damp streets of Bermondsey, I was surprised to find the cavernous ground floor area of 47/49 Tanner Street comfortably warm. I laid my white sheet on the floor, undressed and commenced with four 5-minute poses.

This was my first time here since February so I wasn’t self-conscious about re-using poses I’d come up with since then, and subsequently deployed across London. It was all new stuff as far as Tanner Street Life Drawing was concerned.

After further poses of 10 and 15-minutes, we took a short break for tea and chocolate digestives. Some striking artworks were already emerging; not least those drawn with marker pen on reflective gold or ombre glitter card. I’d never seen the like before.

For a final long pose, I sat on the group’s newly acquired platform work bench. I soon found it had a slight propensity for creaking, so staying still was never more important. 50-minutes and just two creaks later, my work was done. It went well.
