Following the rather eccentric experience modeling for the group of pupils in the cold, dimly lit pub in Manchester, my next modelling session soon after was rather more normal.

One of my original emails, when I was searching for chances, was to a group run by the WEA near Chester and after a while the tutor came back to me and asked me if I could do a session for her on a Wednesday afternoon beginning at 1:00 and running through to 4:00.

While I was very happy to accept the request it did somewhat concern me as to whether I had enough expertise to fill that period of time with enough different poses given that this was a more proper and educational group in relation to the preceding sessions I'd done.
After view of emails the coach and I concurred a rough programme for the session which would start with a string of about five poses of one minute each, followed by two or three standing poses continuing between five and fifteen minutes and a couple of seated poses continuing around twenty minutes. This would then lead to a short break to be follow ed by one seated pose lasting for the remainder of the session of about 50 minutes.

While not necessarily a problem for the seated poses, the more dynamic standing poses can prove difficult and at times even painful with arms and or legs held in unusual locations for any length of time beginning to hurt or cramp up.
So I turned up at the appointed time on the day and affirmed the planned programme together with the coach and did the session as agreed. The artists, mostly ladies of a certain age, were all quite enjoyable and were all very complimentary, which given that this was only my third session, gave me added confidence for the future.
The session should have been a success as, before I left the studio that day, the tutor had requested me to return for two more sessions a month later.
Fortunately I had a number of art books and also scoured the internet to locate a great amount distinct poses that I really could use, so I managed to fill the sessions satisfactorily.
