I attended a Living Art online life session today and was delighted to have the chance to draw body artist and contortionist Francoise. Working in my favourite charcoal this time, sometimes it’s lovely to create in a familiar medium for a change. The poses were swift and my hands tried to keep up as I swept the charcoal across the page.
Decided to give the palette knife a rest and try something a bit different today!
I attended an online life drawing class run by the St Ives School of Painting, tutored by Alice Mumford. The session was inspired by Georges Seurat’s Bathers at Asnieres. Although I’ve used graphite a lot in my drawings before, I haven’t actually been taught in that medium before and it was so interesting to use it for this subject matter.
It’s my second online life session at the St Ives School of Painting and I got so much from it. Highly recommended :)
