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!
