Chilly Two

drawing 2

Here’s the second pose I did yesterday evening at the special life drawing   session 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. This is a one minute pose drawn outside in the ‘Graft’ garden, fair do’s mun, these life models are a hardy bunch.

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


There are loads of art events happening this week, including an excellent exhibition at Swansea Print Workshop, inspired by World War 1 and the work of WW1 artists Frank Brangwyn and Kathe Kollwitz. Below are some works by John Abell, one of fifteen artist printmakers showing their work. “Now The Printmakers” is open Tuesday to Saturday, September 24th to 29th, 10.30 – 4.30 at 19a, Clarence Street, Swansea.
