Keeping At It

hand 2a

A couple of weeks ago at life drawing group at Swansea Print Workshop, I spent most of the session drawing hands, always a difficult area for me. I kept at it and finally ended up with something I really liked. I was working with an older male model and it’s interesting to see how age affects hands.

Earlier this week was the opening of Swansea’s International Women’s Day exhibition at Cinema & Co. It was fantastic, loads of people there and lots of arty and fun things happening. Cinema & Co is putting on a terrific programme of films through the month because it’s also Women’s History Month. Please check out the programme…..

    There is so much more character in old hands. Several decades back I saw a Rembrandt of an old man and I just had to keep returning to look at the hands he had painted. Brava!

      Thanks Leonie. Older people are so underrepresented in modern art – Rembrandt’s work on older people is fabulous 😀
