Life Drawing

Life is getting just a little too hectic. I have not posted for ages. I have not visited any of my favourite blogs. I have been working though and have piles to upload!

Rampedi (fellow Council Member of our local Society) and I organised a series of four life drawing workshops over the June/July school holidays. I have never done this before and found it totally mind blowing! We started off with one minute poses, going on to 5 minute 10 minute, 20, with the longest being about 45 to 50 minutes. It is quite amazing how ones mind seems to click over to the right side and you slide into a different world. Over the next week or so I will be posting a couple of the charcoal drawings I did over the full four weeks. I was actually amazed at how free they were.

Hi Carol, considering you were not used to life drawing these sketches were very good. Hope you do lots more. I am addicted now. Even though it is quite a challenge,

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.
