After our week off it was good to give those drawing skills a good work out with some timed drawings. The Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1 had meerkats as their subject and produced a series of lively sketches in pencil and pen. The Beginners Birds Drawing Course did some similar timed exercises but with blue tits as the subject, using soft pastel. These quick, spontaneous drawings are good practice if you intend to draw from life. The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 2 used inktense blocks and experimented with colour mixing to create these dramatic portraits. Great work everyone.
Don’t forget, the courses have another week off next week and classes will resume in the week commencing Monday 13th May. In the meantime, I’ll see some of you on the Gustav Klimt Pattern Workshop on Monday 6th May – looking forward to it!
See you all soon.
