Sadly, this was the last week of classes for this term and you all finished with a great finale! Our life model Ellie came in to pose for us which meant the Watercolour class got the chance to build on the figure painting techniques they practised last week but this time with the real thing. Working from photographs is great for practise but you always get much better results with a real model infront of you. The Drawing class looked mainly at 2 key elements of figure drawing – proportion and shape. The Pastel class were also able to practise controlling their colour accuracy for hair and flesh tones.
You’ve all come so far since week one and I am extremely proud of you all and the progress you’ve made. I hope you will all now be able to carry on with your art work at home. I’ll be seeing some of you again at the Beginners Drawing Course 2 starting June 15th 2015 (See the Courses For 2015 page for further details) but for those of you that can’t make it then please look out for the new September courses being advertised from July/August.
I hope you’ve all enjoyed these past few weeks as much as I have and I hope to see you at Leeds Art Group events in the future.
Have a lovely summer!
