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,

Slangkop Lighthouse, Kommetjie

SOLD Slangkop lighthouse is the tallest iron tower on the South African Coast and sits at the one end of Kommetjie. It measures 100 feet from base to the balcony and has been operational since 1919. Every lighthouse has a different frequency of flashes and this one emits four flashes every 30 seconds as it turns and can be seen for 33 sea miles. Here is an oil painting of the lighthouse from a photograph Bryan took. I would like to do a watercolour of it sometime soon.
