August saw me doing a lot of drawing for a EXON magazine – it really was a great way to spend the summer.
I did indeed get some drawing done on my French holiday – not much but a little.
Whenever I can (which isn't very often unfortunately) I go to life drawing at Candid Arts. It's a great class, lasting two hours with a mix of short and long poses. They also have a few Saturday dates for life drawing and painting classes. I'm hoping to get one of them in before the end of the year.
I've let the blog get neglected over the past few months and now I feel guilty for leaving it so long between post. I've been busy setting up freelance work and life but really these things only work if you keep up with them.
So I'm sorry little blog I'll try and get you up to date and show you some more TLC.
I'm going 'off grid' for a week to a cabin in the woods with friends. Drawing challenge set - eight images a day.
Third instalment of drawing club saw us visit Cambridge, we first went to Kettle's Yard House and had our materials confiscated due to 'house rules'. I did better than my friend, when I saw her she had only a pencil left. I kept hold of my crayons after much negotiations.
This week I've been drawing these beauties for and a commission – more on that project in due course.
Looking forward to summer days at the beach on this foggy Friday in London.
In the new year I didn't want to let go of my love of drawing again, so I decided to drop one day a week of work and spend Friday's away from the mac and working with my hands. At the same time I knew that this can be a lonely business and I wanted to see if I could have one day a month, meeting friends and drawing together. And so the Friday Drawing Club was born.
A monthly meet up with my friend, the exceptionally talented Laura Barnard was started in February. We meet; we draw and have a cheeky pint or two. It's the best start to the month ever – now that's away to spend a Friday!
