Fantastic! Do you do any pre-lighting prep before your model arrives? I'd like to streamline the life drawing session I go to as the moderator tends to wait and then fumble around for 5-10 minutes at the beginning of each session. I was wondering if you have any particular methodologies in place for making sure your sessions go smoothly.

Rayford- Honestly, I fumble around for 5-10 min at the beginning of each class. As far as I know there is no way to stream line this. If there is a particular lighting effect I want I may do a pre-setup light check. Once I set up the lighting though it usually stays that way the whole class, even with shorter poses. Unfortunately there is no fast way to set up a good pose. We generally have pretty good models though, so that helps.

I am so frustrated by not being able to achieve those nice swooshy effects with my materials. I know you posted your materials a few pages back but I just wonder if all I need is a smooth paper and a charcoal pencil?
Man, I wish I was closer to be able to attend your classes:(

Thanks everyone,
For those who have mentioned wanting to study with me, start saving your dollars, pounds, or whatever. Next year Watts Atelier is running an art boot camp. http://www.wattsatelier.com/Art_Instruction/Workshops/cms.aspx
scroll down to the bottom. I will be officially teaching two of the days, with various other Watts folks filling in other days and Jeff teaching all throughout. I am sure I will be dropping in other days as well, especially if asked to.

Would you ever consider coming over to the Uk to do a workshop... All you guys with the awesome skills to teach are in the US!

Jake- I would consider it if my wife and I had our travel and hotel expenses paid for.
