LIFE drawing is one of the oldest and most traditional forms of art lessons, and it is still proving popular in Oxford.

Artist Francis O’Neill runs life drawing sessions at Magdalen Road Studios which are open for people of all abilities.

The artist, who lives in Jericho, is pictured drawing life model Adam.

He said: “I’ve been running these since about 2009, and they’re usually well-attended.

“I try to get a variety of models so there’s always something new to do, but when people are working on longer projects we get the same person to come in several times.”
