Every other Monday morning there's a life drawing class with a nude.It is a very good way to start your artistic week with a boost! Lots of eye-hand coordination, concentration and getting 'out of comfort zone'. Of course we also have fun, coffee or tea and cookies.
Last Monday, Véronique was our model. She is beautiful and lovely, she has character - and she doesn't sit very still! In other words, quite difficult to draw.
We always start with warming up, poses of 1 minute (in which there's no time to think!) Often the best, most spontaneous drawings are created during that one minute. Here's an example:
1 minute poses, with penAfter the warming up we draw (or paint) 2 other poses, of 10 and 20 minutes, and finish with a one-hour pose. Here are some drawings of the sessions:
Black paper and pastel
Wild combi of charcoal and pastel
Excellent example of 'closer = bigger' + study for a foot
Study of the 'ladyparts' on black paper
Very atmospheric lazy pose
Excellent drawing with closer = bigger hand
If you are interested to follow a class you can pop in coming Monday - or else drop me an email: I have a starters group on Friday morning, and an 'atelier libre' at the same time - and both can still handle a couple more participants...
