Recent images from the workshop
I just attended a 5 day, 6 hours a day intensive life drawing workshop. These are a few images of my drawings - sorry, I didn't get organized and photograph any of the quick poses. These range from 20- about 40 minute drawings. The ones in ink are done with a long broken wooden dowel dipped into a pot of ink, so the control is not exact and the medium is very unforgiving. I had a wonderful time, and feel fired up and ready to participate in our first ever Life Drawing Exhibition - " Body of Work" - at Portals Gallery, opening September 27. My co- exhibitors are my two very dear friends, and very brilliant artists, Sharron Campbell and Kaye Smillie.
