Hands Draw Along

Hi everyone

Well done to everyone who took on last night’s Draw Along challenge. Hands are something that a lot of people find difficult to draw. So what better reason to practise! You did incredibly well to recreate this complex image and you really had to focus on drawing what you could see rather than what we think of as a typical hand shape. Great work, hope you enjoyed it.

There are currently no classes planned for the immediate future but if you have any enquiries please get in touch by email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or tel: 07788 871286.

Below are some of this week’s pictures.

Take care.

Van Gogh Draw Along

Hi folks

Well done to everyone who attended this week’s live online Draw Along. We had Van Gogh’s “Wheatfields with Crows” to inspire us this time and used oil pastel to try and create all those expressive brushstrokes and sgraffito technique to give it more texture. You all did a fantastic job with it and I’ve loved seeing all your pictures. Gorgeous stuff! Well done.

There are 2 more Draw Alongs to come – Monday 7th March and Monday 14th March. Full details can be found on the Courses for 2022 page here. Please get in touch if you would like to book a place by email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or tel: 07788 871286.

“Inspired 6” week 5

Hi everyone

For our final lesson in the “Inspired 6” course we looked at the work of Sybil Andrews, a linocut artist working in the 1930s. We used layers of watercolour paint to create these pictures and tried to convey the sense of movement that she uses in her work. What a great finish to the course everyone! We’ve covered a lot in the past few weeks and I hope you are all really proud of everything you’ve achieved.

The online live Draw Alongs start next week and full details can be found on the Courses for 2022 page here. Please get in touch if you would like to book a place by email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or tel: 07788 871286.
