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]”

Tonight At Life Drawing

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. Here’s a 10 minute pose. I blocked in the figures with the flat side of a conte crayon before I added the linework. Tired now, off to bed. Nos Da, Good Night. My lovely nephew (in the middle) along with these other wonderful young people haveContinue reading “Tonight At Life Drawing”

Another Night At Life Drawing

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Worksop and I’m shattered. So I’m off to bed. I used black, white and sanguine conté crayons onto black paper.

Standing Sequence

Here’s the long pose I did last week at the Life Drawing sesison at Swansea Print Workshop. It was almost an hour and I used black, sanguine and white conté crayon onto black paper. Our model is fantastic. Well, they all are actually. The unsung heroes of the art world. The life drawing sessions areContinue reading “Standing Sequence”

The Janus Mask

Here’s another life drawing from the session at Swansea Print Workshop the other evening, with a 30 minute pose drawn with black, white and sanguine conté crayon onto black paper. Our marvellous model wore two masks on the front and back of her head, like a Janus figure. I did some baking today. We’re onContinue reading “The Janus Mask”

The Masked Model

This is the 10 minute pose I did at last night’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. Our masked model is fabulous, such a great personality and that shows in her poses – mind you, all our models have loads of personality. Life models are the unsung heroes of the art world. I usedContinue reading “The Masked Model”

Just Back From Life Drawing

Just got back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop, working with a fabulous model with a funky mask and great poses. This is a five minute one in conté crayon – white, sanguine and black – onto black paper. I’m off to bed now, after my nice cuppa. Nos da. Good night 😀

The Last Pose Step By Step

Here’s the final pose I did at this week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. It was about 50 minutes long and I was able to get into quite a bit of detail. I started with some squiggles in white conté crayon onto black paper, to map out the basic figure. Then I putContinue reading “The Last Pose Step By Step”

Two Shorts And A Medium

Some more drawings from last night’s life drawing group at Swansea Print Workshop. Above is a 20 minute pose, I like it very much, it’s a bit Renaissanc-ey. Below, two start-up poses, five minutes each. These quick ones train your eye to analyse and draw the essentials, not the detail. Good practice. Drawn onto blackContinue reading “Two Shorts And A Medium”
