The Warrior Returns

5 Sep

2016 August 1

I started working with this particular model some time ago, when a young student with plans to join the army. I have masses of drawings of him which I developed into many prints – monotypes, etchings and even the occasional painting. We’ve had a gap of several years while he has been away travelling as a professional soldier but we met up again recently and hope to resume our professional relationship in the future. I did a couple of drawings, just some quick ones to familiarise myself with his features. It takes a while to get back into working with someone after a gap, I’m a bit rusty but now I have some drawings to refer to, I can see where I’ve gone wrong and what I need to do.


Tea with me at The Workers Gallery – a chance to see my new solo show with lashings of tea and home-made cakes in the gorgeous Cynon Valley.

More Male Model

Charcoal drawing: male head.

The drawing I posted yesterday of one of our male models from life drawing group got quite a lot of comments, so by popular request here are some more drawings of him. He’s a young soldier who has seen action in Afghanistan and when he’s home he likes to relax by doing a spot of life modelling. Being young and fit he’s able to get into some very awkward poses and also hold poses for a long time. He even posed in a handstand once!

Ink drawing: in the life studio.

I’m thinking of turning this drawing into a silkscreen print, I think it’s quite funny and a nice snapshot of a life drawing session :).
