drawing the nude

I attend a day of life drawing, five hours of heavy concentration.
Life drawing is very curious.
This academic study of the nude.
Meaning to be natural, it is very unnatural.
We are willingly locked in our chosen positions for an hour,
this only happens in 'life' drawing.
But this way I get to see some structure, and time is frozen to allow me the opportunity to comprehend the figure in all it's complexity.
How to translate this 'life' to real life is the job in hand.
I suspect this translation work may take me some time.
