A colleague took a video of some gorillas while visiting his local zoo, and I asked if I could sketch from it. The interactions between the gorillas were fascinating to study.

Life Drawing, 31st December
I made it along to some of the epic eight-hour life drawing marathon organised by Deryck Henley on New Year’s Eve. It was great to do some drawing from (digital) life – it had been a few months, and I was very rusty. These poses were modelled by Anna and Mariano.
Life Drawing, 8th October
Last week, I attended a life drawing session where Safire and Andrew held beautiful poses. With three cameras to choose from, I enjoyed capturing the same pose from different angles.
Character Sketching – Pirate
John Mackey was completely in character at last week’s CTN Character Sketching session! It was great fun, and I came away with the desire to rewatch Pirates of the Caribbean …
Character Sketching – Alameda Slim
Last week’s CTN On Model sketching session featured Jonnathon as Alameda Slim, the villain from Home on the Range. I’ve only seen the film once so I don’t know the character very well. At first I really struggled to figure out how his head connects to his neck! By the end of the event IContinue reading “Character Sketching – Alameda Slim”
Life Drawing, April and May
I’ve joined for part of the last couple of life drawing sessions, modelled by Maxime and Dominique (plus a special guest). Some really lovely poses from both of them, and the added challenge of a snake … *EDIT – The initial time posted was wrong. Updated time below.* Tomorrow (May 5th) there’s a special gesture-focusedContinue reading “Life Drawing, April and May”
Life Drawing, 19th November
David was the model for these sketches.
Life Drawing, 22nd October
Maxime was the model on Tuesday. It was great to be at life drawing again; it’s been a long time.
Life Drawing, March and April
It’s been a while since I uploaded any sketches from life drawing … here are some from sessions modelled by Maxime, Lena, Evie, and Susan.
Life Drawing, 9th October
The second day back at life drawing I felt more relaxed. Maxime modelled, holding some lovely and difficult poses. I’m still behind with uploading drawings from the 16th, but I’ll try to post those next weekend.
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”
30- and 60-second gestures of expressions from Line of Action. I enjoyed thinking about the shapes and movement within the face.
Life Drawing, 12th June
David modelled on Tuesday, holding some incredible poses that were often incredibly challenging to draw! It was a good session.
Life Drawing, 22nd May
Sketches from last week’s life drawing session with Andy posing.
Life Drawing, 8th May
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.
I’ve not made it along to life drawing for a few weeks so I thought I’d better get back into practice with some gestures! I drew these from images at Line of Action, using the 30 and 60 second timers.
Life Drawing, October 31st
Andy was modelling at this week’s life drawing. He held some great poses, including one where he played the guitar. As he was actually playing the guitar rather than pretending to, I feel the final drawing has real movement.
Life Drawing, 23rd and 30th May
Here are some of my sketches from the last couple of weeks of life drawing, modelled by Jenny and Michael.
Life Drawing, 16th May
I had another great session of life drawing at The Haining with model Jacque on Tuesday.
Life Drawing, 7th
These drawings are from earlier this month. Another excellent model! I struggled after the break – most of the drawings below are from the first half.
