First Nude Of The Year

15 Jan

jan 5

Back to life drawing sessions at Swansea Print Workshop last night, the first of the year but I only stayed for the first hour because I went off to see The Good, The Bad And The Ugly at Swansea’s newest cinema, Cinema & Co – I’d forgotten what a brilliant film it is.

Anyway, I ended up getting the most foreshortened view possible of our model – oh joy. I’m rusty because I’ve had a few weeks off, well about a month, so this was a challenge. I recorded it on my digital phone as I went along so you can see all the mistakes!

 

 

I drew into an A2 sketchbook made up of brown paper and used white chalk and Winsor & Newton willow charcoal. The brown paper provides a handy mid-tone. Our model is an older man, so interesting to draw.

From January 15th to February 8th, with some of my installations and lino prints in Penarth

From January 15th to February 8th, with some of my installations and lino prints in Penarth’s Pavilion Pier Gallery

And if you’re in Penarth in the next couple of weeks, please visit the Penarth Pier Pavilion Gallery where there’s a joint exhibition of work from Swansea and Cardiff Print Workshops, including some print installations I recently worked on and some of my lino prints.
