Today I dusted the cobwebs off my pencil and newsprint pad and sat down to do some gesture drawing! Todd Bright’s weekly All In Gesture class gets recorded, so I was able to take part at a time that suited me. It was so much fun to do, despite being very rusty.

Gesture Drawing, 5th May
Liat modelled at an amazing gesture drawing session this week. I gave a brief demo on gestures before we began, showing a little of what I’ve been taught while studying animation. The response to what I shared and to the session as a whole was really positive, much more so than I expected. It seemsContinue reading “Gesture Drawing, 5th May”
Life Drawing, 19th November
David was the model for these sketches.
More studies from the Bodies in Motion website! I began with some 30 second sketches, all of which were very rough so I haven’t uploaded any of them. Next I went through one of the motions spending a minute on every drawing. Finally I spent quite a long time on a study of one image.Continue reading “Ballet Studies”

David modelled on Tuesday, holding some incredible poses that were often incredibly challenging to draw! It was a good session.
Life Drawing, 5th June
I went back to conte pastel for last week’s session – I think shaking up the medium every so often helps to keep things fresh! First-time model Silvi held some great poses.

Bren modelled at life drawing on Tuesday. I enjoyed the variety of poses, and even drew part of the room using the mirror in the final drawing.
Life Drawing, 6th February
Last week I had a good life drawing session with lots of dynamic and interesting poses. I drew in conte pastel for the first half, which was an attempt to shake me up a bit and loosen my drawings. Though everything felt a bit messy I think it was good as an exercise. I’ve noticedContinue reading “Life Drawing, 6th February”
Life Drawing, 9th January
My first drawing session after Christmas, and I was quite rusty … it took me a while to warm up. We had a break just as I was beginning to feel I could draw again!
Life Drawing, December 2017
What with packing up and moving across most of the country and Christmas and New Year, it’s taken me a while to post some of my life drawing sketches from December. Here’s a selection!
Life Drawing, 24th October
Moving for work has meant I’ve had to search for another life drawing class … thankfully this last week I found one! It’s a great little group and the model this week, Helen, came up with some lovely poses. It’ll be good to get back into regular classes again.
Life Drawing, 27th June
It was the final life drawing session last week, modelled by Ina. I’ll miss the weekly sketching, but hopefully this will push me to draw more the rest of the time.
Life Drawing, 16th May
I had another great session of life drawing at The Haining with model Jacque on Tuesday.
A simple companion piece to my Good Friday image, celebrating Christ’s resurrection. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own loveContinue reading “Easter”

The Life of Birds
Today I attempted some gesture drawing from an episode of The Life of Birds. As I reached the end of Planet Earth II last year I realised I really should have had my sketchbook out. It’s good training for cafe gesture drawing, which I’m normally pretty hopeless at. As soon as people or animals are actually moving myContinue reading “The Life of Birds”
Life Drawing, 8th
After being in Glasgow for almost a whole month (!) I made it along to life drawing at the ATYN here on Monday. The location and the models were great, but I missed having short poses after the break! I felt I fiddled with my drawings too much during the longer poses. Hopefully I’ll haveContinue reading “Life Drawing, 8th”
Some sketches from Tuesday. The models were great – lots of lovely poses!
March Life Drawing
I’ve not been too good at uploading my drawings recently. Here are a few sketches from the last few weeks of life drawing!
Life Drawing, 2nd
I made it along to the class on Tuesday and did a little better this time, though I’m still struggling with the confidence in some lines. More practice needed!
