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 – Dorothy
Rachel modelled as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz at last week’s On Model session. A little different from the last couple of weeks – this time I wasn’t following a model sheet!
Life Drawing, 19th May
Vera modelled at this Tuesday’s session. She held some great poses with interesting shapes.
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, 12th May
Vilidian modelled at this week’s life drawing session. Unfortunately I’d run out of paper (more is on the way) but I drew in Photoshop instead. I tried to resist using ‘Undo’ but didn’t always succeed … It was nice having some close-up poses near to the camera.
Character Sketching – Maleficent
I’ve admired artists who turned their life drawing sketches into characters for years, but though I’ve used my drawings as inspiration for characters I’ve never, until now, drawn a model and drawn a character at the same time. It’s tough. But it’s fun! With so much online at present, I discovered that CTN is runningContinue reading “Character Sketching – Maleficent”
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, 14th March
My regular life drawing group has moved online, so last week I sketched Amelia from the comfort of my own home! I’ve done quite a lot of drawing from stills online, so it was familiar in that way. The shorter poses worked well, but I struggled to see the detail for the longer poses –Continue reading “Life Drawing, 14th March”

Life Drawing, 28th January
Danna modelled at this week’s life drawing session. Her poses were often unusual and pretty challenging to draw! I set myself an additional challenge this week of drawing the longer poses in colour. I’ve done a few digital studies from photographs recently, but it has been a long time since I’ve used colour in aContinue reading “Life Drawing, 28th January”
Life Drawing, 10th December
Sue modelled at the final life drawing session of 2019. It’s hard to believe it’s a new year, let alone a new decade!
Life Drawing, 3rd December
Sophie, an acrobat, modelled at life drawing this week and held some unusual poses! I also did some sketching as she warmed up.

David was the model for these sketches.
