HAS Life

Another glorious day at Hertford, where we did the usual thing of a few quick sketches, and then a longer pose in the afternoon. A big thank you to the two wonderful models.

I had a thoroughly wonderful day in Hertford. I tried to continue with the contour drawing, but got a bit lost I think. In too much of a hurry! I did spread the word though, with several others having a go, and my friend Stella Green, in particular, understanding immediately and producing some spectacular drawings. I do wish I had taken photographs of them.

Life drawing

I have had a fantastic day!  Life drawing, all day, with tuition from Peter Kavanagh. His enthusiasm got to me and I was inspired to do my best and work hard. And I am pleased with what I did.
Peter basically teaches to LOOK at what you are drawing and promotes contour drawing. Initially without looking at your paper and then an occasional look to get your bearings, then just draw, bearing in mind all you have learnt. I really hope I shall remember in future and not go back to drawing what I think I see!

HAS Life

Started badly with the quick poses. I really want to put her head and boob in the right places!

Didn't get better here! This model had a pixie face with sticky out ears set way back on her head and huge eyes, which I couldn't get in a few minutes.

Longer pose, and getting better.

Love this one. Getting the hang of it.

What can I say? Maybe I shall get back and right the wrongs in this one. Still, I had a brilliant day, as usual, despite the lack of masterpieces.

Hertford Art Society

Started very clumsily, but improved as the morning progressed I think. I really like the last one. These are all sepia ink, used with a brush.

The afternoon was spent concentrating on the head study, in oils. Difficult perspective and  thoroughly engrossing. Another enjoyable day.

Hertford Art Society Life Session

A good day, but evidently lacking energy!
