RETURN TO LIFE DRAWING SESSIONS




After a summer break we returned to Foxley Gallery for our Tuesday life drawing sessions with Claire. I took along a beautifully eggshell covered Daler Rowney 150 gsm sketchbook 10 x 9 inches with wonderful smooth paper and a set of 6 graphitint pencils, water brush and sepia pens. They turned out quite gentle - so I think theres need to enlarge each image to see better detail.
Have created this post before dinner (Clive's cooking tonight) as I shall be away for a couple of days delivering the work to the country inn for their converted barn accommodation. Tell you what she finally chooses for the five suites when I get back.

A lovely lot of sketches, Joan...I like the softness.

Thanks Serena - glad you enjoy my artistic diversity. One day I might end up being reknowned for a particular genre but I doubt it. Left message on your blog.

I don't know if my comment made it through. I think these are your best life drawings you've posted.

Thaks for the compliment Robert. They are much simpler and softer than I usually do. It must have been the lovely smooth paper.
