Life Drawing And Home Cooking

3 Oct

This life model likes to hold an unusual pose and this one was great, but an upside down face is really hard to draw. And the foreshortening was wicked. I used Daler Rowney artist’s pastels onto a heavy textured vintage paper, size about A1 – quite big. There was a spotlight on over our model which gave some radical shadows which reminded me of Toulouse-Lautrec’s drawings and paintings at The Folies Bergere so I used quite a harsh purple and green palette. This was a couple of weeks ago at the Swansea Print Workshop weekly life drawing session.

And today I did some baking. Young nephew called over so I had an excuse. Jam tarts (home made jam natch), apricot tart and chorizo / butter bean / cheese pasties. Not much left now 😀
