Courses – week 4 and “Lion” Draw Along

Hi everyone

What great work you’ve been doing this past week. You’re all really putting the effort in and it’s paying off. The “Inspired 1” course took Maori patterns as their inspiration for these intricate pen drawings. The “Pencil and Paper 3” course had a really tough one this week – reflections! Reflective objects are one of the hardest things to draw and you all did great. In this week’s Draw Along we had the “King of the Jungle” to work from with this fabulous regal Lion as our subject. Fantastic drawings everyone, well done.

See you all soon

“Flower” Draw Along

Hi folks

Well done to everyone who joined the live online “Draw Along” this week. The image we worked from was a photograph by Karl Blossfeldt. We focused on how to create different tones and how to use contrasts in tone to create these fantastic drawings. Brilliant work everyone. It’s really great being able to all draw together in real time even if we aren’t in the same room. I hope you’re enjoying these Draw Alongs as much as I am.

Below are some of the drawings produced during the lesson and more can be seen on our Instagram page @leedsartgroup

Courses – week 3

Hi folks

This week was collage week in the “Inspired 1” course and we took inspiration from Matisse’s colourful cut outs. Well done to all of you for just going for it and enjoying the process as much as the outcome. The “Pencil and Paper 3” course were practising their control of different tones and how we can use tone to describe surfaces. Fabulous work everyone, keep it up!

Courses – week 2 and new Draw Alongs

Hi everyone

This week the “Inspired 1” course looked at the stained glass work of Louis Comfort Tiffany and created these vibrantly colourful paintings. In the “Pencil and Paper 3” course we explored all the different effects we could achieve using just pencil for these illuminated letters covered in different patterns, shapes, marks and tones. Brilliant work everyone. I hope you’re all enjoying the courses.

Courses – week 1 and new Draw Alongs

Hi folks

It’s good to be back after our Summer break and great to see all your pictures again. In the “Inspired 1” course we took the expressive paintings of Van Gogh as our starting point and in the “Pencil and Paper 3” we went with a classic – still life (natural forms). Well done everyone, a fantastic start to the new term.

“Giraffe” Draw Along

Hi everyone

We had another live online “Draw Along” this week and our subject was this handsome giraffe. It was a tough ask to fit so much into our hour and a half lesson but you all did brilliantly and many of you have told me how much you enjoyed drawing the giraffe – I think it shows! Well done everyone, fantastic work!
