The two life drawing sessions I attended at Lydia’s were some of my favorite ever.
I’m not a big life drawing person, since I did so very much of it at Parsons; I mostly prefer to draw naked people having sex or people with clothes.
However the sessions at Lydia’s with professional models E and L were very special.
It’s such a pleasure to draw expert models, surrounded by fellow artists.
And yet, I couldn’t publish these drawings on my “regular” site, because they show naked people touching each other. So they languished, unavailable for you to download and frame and enjoy, for a year. Now that I have suzanneforbes.com set up with European hosting and registry, site security and age-gating, I can publish all the nude drawings I want. (Thank my husband for his hard work getting all this set up!)
If you’re confused about why even life drawing has become a liability for US internet platforms, you can read here about the chilling effect of the new laws known as SESTA-FOSTA.
I’m working on crowdfunding for this site; meanwhile, if you see me around town you can always hand me a euro or buy me a non-alcoholic beverage!
