Life Drawing


May – December 2016

For my record, as a learning exercise and experience and for comparative purposes over the next 6 months.

I am playing with materials, and tools, remembering old lessons and picking up new techniques and approaches.

My goal is to create at least life-size life-drawings, using blocks of charcoal.

The next step is to work on sheets of A1 and to study anatomy more closely.

All works created at sessions with Sussex Arts Club or at Charleston. Sessions typically 2 hours with drawing periods ranging from 5 x 1 minutes to 45 minute sessions. In 2017 I will also be trying the longer pose held over self weeks.

Simple lessons learnt:

  • Less is more
  • Size matters : hands are the size of the face
  • Shade not lines
  • Essence, mood and feeling
  • Pair up up the right tool and paper
  • Study the artists I admire.
