Figure Drawing Studies of Shelby, by Kim Blair

Shelby
12x9, graphite, pen & ink study 
 Shelby
4x3, close-up of scribble study
 Shelby Lying On Her Side
4x8, ink study
Shelby in OM Pose
9x6, felt marker study

The time slips by at the figure drawing sessions... from the first few 30 second poses to the final 30 minute pose... the time seems to condense, creating a feeling that the evening was only an hour long rather than 3 hours.

Being completely engaged in the creative process seems to be the key to activating this 'time warp'.  Focusing my attention on drawing the model shifts my brain into auto-pilot, which seems to remove most of my awareness from the conscious level that deals with the relativity of time.

Or at least that's what I think may be happening?
