One of my first emails, when I was searching for chances, was to a group run by the WEA near Chester and after a little while the tutor came back to me and asked me if I could do a session for her on a Wednesday afternoon starting at 1:00 and running through to 4:00.
While I was quite happy to accept the request it did fairly concern me as to whether I had enough experience to fill that length of time with enough distinct poses given that this was a more formal and educational group in relation to the previous sessions I'd done.
This would subsequently result in a short break to be followed by an individual seated pose lasting for the remainder of the session of about 50 minutes.
This at least gave me a chance to consider what I should do and also an opportunity to try a couple poses at home while timing myself to discover how long I could hold them. While not necessarily a issue for the seated poses, the more dynamic standing poses can prove difficult and sometimes even debilitating with arms and or legs held in unusual places for any duration of time starting to ache or cramp up.
So beach bum turned up at the appointed time on the day and confirmed the planned programme together with the coach and did the session as concurred. The artists, chiefly women of a particular age, were all very pleasant and were all very complimentary, which given that this was just my third session, gave me added confidence for the future.
The session should have been a success as, before I left the studio that afternoon, the coach had asked me to return for two more sessions a month after. Again nudism was very pleased to concur but unexpectedly came to the realisation that in that intervening period I was really going to need to work out a lot more models to fill those three hour sessions.
Fortunately beach party had quite a few art books and also scoured the net to locate a great amount distinct poses that I really could use, so I managed to fill the sessions satisfactorily.
Since then I've been working with the tutor for this group on a regular basis and have posed for nearly twenty sessions. Luckily there's been beach bum in the artists attending over that point so I have really been able to replicate a number of the poses more or less as I initially performed them or with only little variation.)
