Have you ever met anyone and instantly found that you wanted to paint them?
All the time, however I don’t act on it often.
In my experience, most people in the world who have never taken a life-drawing class, assume that sex is somehow tangled into finding someone aesthetically interesting enough to draw/paint. I’ve had instances where it came off as a line/flirtation on my end to my embarrassment, instances where I have drawn someone and other people assume I’m sleeping with her, and instances at the end of a drawing session where the model was confused when I told her she can put her clothes back on because she thought it was a date.
I firmly believe that if a single life drawing course was mandated for every individual, the global view on our bodies would completely shift… plus it would save me from more awkwardness in the future.
