Vanessa and Colin

A fantastic opportunity to draw a couple that know each other.
Not the normal style of modeling for them but the energy was fantastic for us and extra limbs to worry about

More life drawings of Elly

These are all shorter than 15 minute poses as Elly was fading after a stressful train journey.


Elly is a fantastic model. Her face looks nothing like the 'boyish' shape I have drawn in the bottom one of these - don't know what I was thinking of - certainly not looking properly!

Ink drawing for a change

I decided to use ink in this session. Was a bit disappointed with the paper.
I prefer to use "Seawhite" cartridge paper from paintworks - only 20p a sheet if bought in bulk - which is decent value for an acid free paper. a London shop

Life drawing the male nude

long and shorter poses

New Model Miko

New season, new models.
I continue to find great models through RAM and
I find it good practice to study a variety of models so that my mind doesn't trick me into relying on familiarity and memory, and I have to keep looking.
It is the looking that creates the energy and concentration which is really fulfilling in these precious 2 1/2 hours a week.

Autumn restart

Getting back to drawing now the winter is drawing in...
