The drawing and painting class is my favourite. We've covered the basics and it's surprising how much you can achieve and learn in one class. We did the traditional still life fruit of bowl drawing, in pencil/charcoal and then in acrylic in the first 2 classes. I can't find the pencil drawing. Oops.
Then we had a life model come in - numerous quick 2-minute sketches here and an hour and a half sitting later in the session.
I was worried about nothing. The whole thing is rather sedate.
The model dozed off in the midde of the session.
My portraits class is quite fun too. Easily the liveliest classmates i have, even though they are also the oldest bunch at several decades older. In chronological order:
Ruby, a classmate
An attempt at Cate
My teacher, Jasmina, looking rather sleepy here
(nearly all the models do, probably something to do with the light in their face)
Lady Model (forgot her name)
Graham Johnson, Professional Gentleman Model for 30 years (interesting dude)
Hmm....i'm not sure what this proves. That i have the supreme ability to waste perfectly good canvas or that my e-mails are so boring. Arrgh.
