Life in Budleigh
We’re nearing the end our first course of life drawing sessions
and they’re proving both instructive and enjoyable. For some of us this is a completely new venture and for others, the opportunity to re-engage with previous experiences of the subject.
Bicton House has provided us with a magnificent room for the purpose and
with a variety of male and female models, all of us have enjoyed the challenge of interpreting the human form on paper with charcoal, pencil and graphite.
Artists at both morning and afternoon sessions have sketched and drawn from very challenging short poses – 30 seconds - up to longer ones of an hour or so and the standard is rapidly improving for both first-timers and more experienced members. A fine body of work is materialising on this traditional and at the same time, very contemporary branch of fine art.
Keep an eye on this space for continuing, up-to-date examples of drawings, sketches and expressionist renderings of our wonderful models, Krissi, Nick and Sophia.
Since we started last month, there’s been further interest from members in continuing with the subject, either with classes or simple workshops so we’ll look at numbers to find the best way forward. If you’re interested in joining, please contact John Washington at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can assess how many members might want to participate.
