Had such a lovely evening, doing life drawing at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea. The event is part of the Now The Hero / Nawr Yr Arwr arts festival happening over the coming week. There was a large group of artists and five life models and we started out in the ‘Graft’ garden, with three short poses from the brave and dedicated models who must have been freezing. It was only 6pm and it’s been sunny all day, but there was a bit of a chill even fully clothed ……

Then we went into the Waterfront Museum, which stayed open late, and worked through til quarter past eight, drawing, drawing, drawing. This is the first pose, just 2 minutes. Short poses really make you focus on quickly capturing the essence of the subject, not the detail and I think they are more lively and dynamic than the longer poses.

I used three conté crayons in white, sanguine and black into an A4 spiral bound brown paper sketchbook from Seawhite’s of Brighton.

    Fascinating and it must be difficult drawing with the chill in the air.

        Your linework will always be more interesting if you are shivering!🤣
