Back in the Liferoom

It’s been nearly 3 months since my last foray into the life room and it was so good to shake off the temptation to sink into winter hibernation on this miserable grey January Saturday. Below are a few sketches from the 4 hour session…..

January 2015 lifedrawing workshop

In lifedrawing, Workshops on January 31, 2015 at 11:07 pm

It’s been 2 months since our last life drawing session and what with the excesses of the festive season and winter weariness, it took a while for the creative cogs to get moving….

After 4 hours, this was drawn in the last 15 minutes and I’m reasonably pleased that I didn’t give up and go for a coffee!

Spooky!

In Demonstration, Painting Techniques, Paintings on October 7, 2014 at 11:43 am

As a follow up to Saturday’s portrait workshop, I decided to start a new painting. So last night I covered an old portrait that wasn’t working with burnt umber and this morning started taking away the paint with a brush and later a cloth dipped in thinners.

The result is a rather spooky image!

It won’t stay like this for long I need to let this dry and start working into it. Perhaps I’ll post further stages in the development (and perhaps not….)

I was tutoring this portrait session but was able to do a bit of sketching in between -stops me peering over people’s shoulders too much and making them nervous!
