Still Scribbling….

Here’s another scribble sketch I did in last week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I’m keeping things simple for a while. A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintageContinue reading “Still Scribbling….”

A Scribbled Head

Here’s a scribbled head from last week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I’m using a large, A2, brown paper sketchbook and I’ve decided to push out of my comfort zone and try different techniques in my life drawings until the book is finished. A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks I haveContinue reading “A Scribbled Head”

The Scribbled Figure

I tried out a different approach to life drawing the other evening, at Swansea Print Workshop. I’m working into a large A2 size brown paper sketchbook with soft Rembrandt pastels. My drawings are usually quite representational but this time I loosened up and had a scribble. It made me look at the model in aContinue reading “The Scribbled Figure”

Simple And Symmetrical

Here’s one of the 30 minute poses I drew at life drawing last night. I really love this one, it’s all simple shapes and very symmetrical. I drew with conte crayons in black and sanguine onto some heavy paper that I had used for a monotype, but I didn’t like the way it turned out.Continue reading “Simple And Symmetrical”

Just Back From Life Drawing

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop this evening, here are the first two quick poses, to get warmed up. Off to bed now. Goodnight. Hwyl Fawr 🙂 My lovely nephew (in the middle) along with these other wonderful young people have benefitted from the Children In Need charity and now they’re givingContinue reading “Just Back From Life Drawing”

Difficult Hands!

Here’s the last drawing from last week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I decided to focus in close on details and I used a ballpoint pen and work fairly small, size A3 paper. The hands were really difficult! My lovely nephew (in the middle) along with these other wonderful young people have benefittedContinue reading “Difficult Hands!”

Making It Fit. Or Not!

Here’s a longer pose from last night’s life drawing session – 30 minutes. It’s good to do the quick warm-ups first and then go into something more leisurely. Our model, an elder, is very experienced and creates interesting poses. This one was lovely to draw but there was no way I could fit him allContinue reading “Making It Fit. Or Not!”

Monday Video: Working With My Muses [1]

I’ve been browsing my YouTube channel and I’d forgotten a lot of the stuff on there, especially the earlier films. So I thought I’d spend the next few Mondays posting some of my art videos. Husb is the tecchie filmie person in the household and he puts these short films together. This is created fromContinue reading “Monday Video: Working With My Muses [1]”

Taking Liberties

Here’s the longer pose (one hour) from this week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. The previous drawings in the session had been quite academic, in conte crayon, and I really wanted to let go a bit so I grabbed a much bigger sheet of paper and some Daler Rowney oil pastels and focusedContinue reading “Taking Liberties”

Draw What You See …..

Here’s a longer pose from this week’s life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop, 30 minutes, using conte crayons in sanguine and black onto cartridge paper. There’s some pretty extreme foreshortening with this and her left foot was at an odd angle so the shape of it is really weird, but I kept checking and it’sContinue reading “Draw What You See …..”
