    I know. My attempt at spicing up yet another secret tool thread.

    Well it took 3 posts to express your PoV. The OP simply asked why does David...and your contribution is basically "who cares and it's ridiculous to do so". Well obviously the OP cares and he/she might want to use them.

    What I'd like is some sideways glasses like Norman Rockwell had. Because I wear glasses to see far away and with the glasses I have I look at the paper with the glasses and over the glasses at the model... grrr. Or maybe little glass stilts to lift the glasses in front of my eyes even when my head is down...

    I think THAT would deserve a thread, whether it helps his painting or not.

    Most of the life drawing venues I go to are rather close/intimate.

    The echidna would come off as far less creepy. . .

    There's someone at one of my life drawing groups who wears these weird glasses with lights on them... He also hums loudly while drawing. People tend to sit far away from him.

    I still don't have a clue what the lights are for, aside from being a means of gaining personal space.

    He explained it himself in some of the interviews.

    He uses it to place the person out of focus, so you can only see the large masses of colour without shapes. It helps a lot, think of it like squinting your eyes.
