Just Back …..

1 Jul

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. It’s late and I’m off to bed soon. Here’s a 10 minute pose from our brilliant model. I drew with sanguine and black conte crayons onto vintage paper.

Nos Da, Good Night

The Lounging Pose

15 Dec

Dave 60 mins 6

Here’s the last drawing / painting I did at life drawing last week. It was a 60 minute pose – nearly – in gouache onto black paper. I like these lounging poses, they’re very natural. Having an hour gave me a chance to really concentrate on things like perspective, foreshortening and measuring. It isn’t as immediate or alive as some of the quicker poses though.

 

 

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

After The Short Poses ….

13 Dec

Dave 30 mins b

After the short poses at life drawing sessions, we move on to 30 minute poses, where I can focus a bit more on the details, but not too much. This week I did a portrait and a reclining pose. Two of my favourites. I’m using gouache into a black sketchbook.

The Short Poses

12 Dec

Dave 5 mins b

We always have a few quick poses at the life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop, a cuple of five minutes, one or two ten minutes. These are great because they force you to concentrate on capturing what’s essential, the basis that underlie the image. In the 5 minute pose above, our model poses with a mobile phone and a bandana mask, very contemporary.

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop this evening, had a lovely session, we are lucky to have such a brilliant group of life models. I’m off to bed now, I’ll publish the rest over the next couple of days. This is a quick 5 minute pose ….

A Head In Gouache

Here’s another drawing I did at last week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I spent some time doing a portrait in a 25 minute pose. I used black and white gouache into a black paper sketchbook.

Wet And Dry

Here are a couple more short poses from Thursday evening’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. The one above is a 5 minute pose and the one below 10 minutes. I was using gouache for the first time for life drawing, white and black onto black paper. I enjoyed the feel of the paint and I’m a bit more experimental with the wet paint than I normally am with dry media. Our lovely model doesn’t look like that, I was deliberately distorting.

Just Back ……

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop this evening. Tired now. Here’s a five minute pose. I used gouache which I’ve hardly ever done before, black and white paint into a black bound Seawhites A4 sketch book.

Nos da. Good night.

The 60 Minute Pose

23 Nov

60 mins 5

Here’s a 60 minute pose from life drawing session a few nights ago at Swansea Print Workshop. It has some difficult foreshortening and I ended up with two hands, two feet and a head which is a lot of drawing.  It’s distorted but I like that. I admire the work of Egon Schiele, who also distorted some of his nudes, so if it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for me.

No Foreshortening

15 Nov

20 mins c

Here’s a 20 minute pose I did during the latest life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I didn’t particularly like the angle but with the Covid19 restrictions, we can’t move around the drawing studio to find another vantage point, like we used to – we have fixed workstations now – so I had to do my best.

I like to draw reclining figures with foreshortening, even though it’s much harder.
