Last life class of this series
and a first for the Club
As if drawing from one model wasn't enough of a challenge, the last session of the current series presented double the difficulty with two of our regular, professional life models, Krissi and Nick, posing as a duo.
Both morning and afternoon classes started with tentative sketches but confidence was soon regained with their beautiful poses helping to inspire innovative drawings that the artists perhaps didn't think were achievable. With two models acting in tandem we were able to replicate some classical poses as well as inspired dance and theatrical stances, sometimes even difficult to maintain ones that had to be drawn in double quick time - see the quick sketch above - because they were so complex and awkward to hold for more than a minute or so. Below is a selection of some of the work produced - a most enjoyable and inspiring end to a well-attended and successful series.
Our thanks are due to all our superb models who have been outstanding and a joy to work with throughout the series - namely, Krissi, Nick, Sophia, Sally, Gemma and Sophie.
So now we have more life drawing and portrait painting workshops to look forward to. Dates and venues for the new series are yet to be established but in the meantime we will be arranging some one-off life and portrait days for those who can't wait. And importantly for any member interested in dipping their toe in the water to see if they enjoy the challenges of these classic subjects. Watch this space for more information.
