It's been a while since I had a figure drawing session. I have noticed I get some pretty good drawings after a break. I think it gives me time to stop over thinking the drawings and lets the natural drawing take charge again, hopefully with some improvements gained through the months of struggle.
It is really hard to draw a face/head when it is upside down. After a couple failed attempts I had to spin my large drawing pad around to work out the face structure straight up before moving on.
