Another Chilly One

Here’s another one-minute pose I did last weekend at the special life drawing   session at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, drawn outside in the open air in the new ‘Graft’ garden: CHILLY! Life models are stalwarts, so important to an artist’s practice and rarely acknowledged for the work they do. It isn’t easy. The drawing event was part of the Now The Hero / Nawr Yr Arwr arts festival happening this week in Swansea.

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 is one of a series of monotypes called The Warrior that I have done while working with one particular model over 10 years and I am one of fifteen artist printmakers showing their work. “Now The Printmakers” is open until Saturday, September 29th, 10.30 – 4.30 at 19a, Clarence Street, Swansea.
