A warm welcome at October’s Life Drawing

We welcomed some new members to our life drawing workshop in October (16th), but the main warmth was the hall itself. Not overly so, but much better than September!

Our model posed in several demanding poses over the two hours, for both him and the artists. Standing or bending over, using a support, were quicker poses (5 – 10 mins). Lying tended to be for 20-30 minute poses. Perspective from the foot up on a prone pose was especially difficult.

A quick check on a sample of attendees revealed several media in use. Pencil probably most common, but charcoal, pastel, inks, pastel pencil, and a first attempt at digital life drawing all made an appearance.

Don’t forget: our last live Demonstration of the year – Peter French -is on Wednesday at the Methodist Church.
