Life drawings 24/10/2022 (acrylic/ink/pastels/chatcoal on A1 paper 84cm x 59cm – 2.5 hours, 1 hour, 45 mins). Started boldly as usual, but ended up getting sidetracked by ‘local colour’ and muting everything. Sigh… Great poses by the model, though!

Here’s a self-portrait sketch made during a live portrait demo for the Denbighshire and District Art Society this afternoon. Graphite on A1 paper (84 x 59.5 cm) in approx 50 minutes. I also attempted a portrait of a Ukrainian lady who kindly volunteered to sit, however my sketch didn’t do her justice so I’m too embarrassed to post it! Still, it was good practice and great fun meeting and chatting with everyone! My thanks to Chris and the DAS for inviting me.

I thought I’d mention that I recently joined the If you’re an artist looking for help and support to take your business to the next level, then look no further! They are a team of very experienced and incredibly enthusiastic people with loads to offer in terms of advice, guides, templates and hugely informative webinars, not to mention insurance and mentorship. Highly recommended!

First life drawing class since June of last year. It was also the first time I’ve picked up a paintbrush in 2 months, as I took some time out to do some reading and thinking. Acrylic/graphite on A1 paper (84cm x 59cm)
