  1. This is a site I’ve been looking for forever. When you search the internet for models posing or life drawing models you end up with a million and one sites with everything from X-rated chat sites to porn. I am 69 years old with COPD and it is difficult to travel any distance to life drawing classes. Hiring a model is also very expensive and not recommended. Thank you so much – I like your photo groupings and will definitely use some of the photos as references for life study paintings on Bob Ranney Paintings.

      Being able to find serious life drawing resources like those provided by this site is definitely challenging when doing internet searches.

    Great site. I want to be a model but I am an older guy at 58 with a body that is frankly not bronze Adonis. Should I pursue my interest – which is sincere and commited?

    I have offered to do a life model appointment A local meet up for 3 hours. My first time, what advice about how many poses in various positions can anyone give. Should I cancel? Or bite the bullet and give it a go.
