Head Hands and Feet

27 Apr

Ink sketch.

Went to my weekly life drawing group at Swansea Print Workshop last night and had a really good session with three drawings that I think I might be able to work up eventually into large monotypes. Towards the end I sat back and just had a bit of a practice with the head, hands and feet, always the problem areas for me. This model has a very striking face which I find hard to draw so it’s good for me to get in a bit of practice. It’s a reasonable likeness. His hands were in a very complex clasp and I’m pleased with the way they’ve turned out. I used a Faber Castell Pitt pen size S into an A3 Bockingford sketchbook.

Today I helped interview artists for the upcoming residencies for the ‘Drawn To Print’ project at the Print Workshop. We had an excellent shortlist and appointed three fabulous artists who base their printmaking practice on fantastic drawing competence. The first one starts in a few weeks and I can’t wait!

Here’s a bit of trivia – Heads Hands and Feet was the name of a British rock band in the early 1970’s.

    I love how youve drawn the hands here. Hands are one of the trickiest things to draw. Youve done SUPER well! 🙂
