this weekend we had the annual exhibition of our Thursday night figure drawing group, traditionally called the "Fruits of the Figure' exhibition from when it was part of the now defunct and council sponsored 'Fruits of the Hawkesbury' Festivals.
I showed a small selection of work from this year on the wall, four folders with 40 drawings in each, a digital frame with over 350 images from the past few years and  had some recent portraits on the floor as well as a stand with some framed paintings.
