The last Life Class before the summer break

Every other Monday there is a life class, with a nude. In these corona times it is a bit harder, because there has to be distance, groups can not be too big and we need to wear facial masks. But we make it work and it is quite representative for how the Hangar.rolls.

Last Monday had a bit of 'Murphy's law' over it, when the proudly announced model Marie-Jo didn't show up. It took some time to find out (also models are sometimes stuck in traffic) and Marina posed for the warming up (6 poses of 1 minute). Then Marie-Jo called back to say that she was too sick to come... And Marina also posed for the second part of the warming up, while on the phone with alternative models.

And during the slightly longer pose (woman with phone yet again 😄) we got the redeeming call from Josie that she would drop off the kids, hurry to the Hangar to be there for the long pose. Fantastic and forever in your debt Josie! In the mean time also Marie-Pierre volunteered to sit, which she did perfectly...

AFter that we had a lovely break outside, with Marie-Pierres fab last-session cookies, Josie arrived and we took it from there: One long pose, hard for the model, but giving us all the time in the world to observe, estimate, draw shadow and light and even have a resemblance!
Here are the results:

The life drawing class closes until September. If you are interested, put yourself on the mailing list by sending a mail to the Hangar email address
Happy Holidays!!

The Drawing Trip to Coursegoules was a success!

In the morning of 10 July, Patrick, Kate, Brenda, René, Ina, Anna and of course Pim and Marina departed 9am sharp from Le Hangar, for a drawing day in the lovely village of Coursegoule, in the Pré-Alpes, behind Vence. It was around an hour drive, and more than worth it! So picturesque, beautiful colours, gorgeous trees, views and very nice villagers, who were al interested and a good audience...
And a wonderful restaurant Le P'tit Creux, where we had our morning coffee (thank you Patrick!!) and later our lunch, a Breton experience, new for most of us, with Galettes Sarrasin, filled with amazing goat cheese, raw ham, fresh veggies and more.Combined with healthy smoothies for some and rosé or red for others, it was a perfect lunch.

Here are some pictures of the group and then of the drawings that were created!:

The Restaurant was a lovely starting point... (The 4th picture shows Pim with his p'tit crêpe chocolat  during lunch 😀) We had a coffee and then moved to the village square ...

We sat down and, to warm up the muscles, drew several typical elements of the village, doors, the tower, and the beautiful trees

After an excellent lunch, all went back to drawing other parts of Coursegoule, the church for instance turned out to be inspiring. As you can see below:

We had a wonderful and interesting day, and as you may derive from the pictures, all participants were happy and felt that it had done them good. Pim and I are probably organising one more short trip to a lovely location nearby!
After the summer there is the 4-day autumn-trip to Castiglione del Lago in Italy,

If you wnt to come along - there is plenty of place still! Subscribe via your teachers. And watch your email...
