Viewing single post of blog Life Drawings

I tuned in to a life drawing session from the School of Painting, St Ives last weekend. The theme for this time was Matisse’s use of patterns to create space and form. Alice Mumford encouraged us to draw in ink, using a stick or similar wooden implement. I found a broken end of a paintbrush that used to belong to my great-aunt Amy that worked well.

Alice Mumford’s enthusiasm was, as always, deliciously infectious and utterly inspiring – and I rediscovered the ink medium as a source of delight!
