This week the Drawing and Pastel classes worked on self-portraits and wow – what fantastic results! You all started with the same basic guidelines and then made alterations to turn them into your own individual portraits. A lot of people are a little apprehensive about self-portraits at first but by the end of the lesson you really got it and I think for many of you this was your best work yet. The Watercolour class used this weeks lesson to try out some figure painting techniques and did some 5 minute paintings to explore a much freer, sketchy way of working. You all did some great paintings and this will be good practise for next week when all 3 classes have a life model coming in to pose for us. I can’t wait to see what you’re all going to produce next week.
Sadly next week is the last lesson for all the courses. The next Leeds Art Group course will be the daytime Beginners Drawing Course 2 starting on June 15th. For those of you who have previously attended the Beginners Drawing Course please note that the June course is a completely new course with different lessons and content. However, you don’t need to have completed the original drawing course in order to attend this new course, it is a “stand alone” course. See the Courses For 2015 page for further details. Unfortunately there will be no further evening classes until September 2015.
See you all next week.
