Saturday saw the first ‘Different ways of seeing’ sessions: ‘The quick draw’ at the Artist Residence hotel.
For the first hour, our wonderful model, Feryal, did a series of very short, energetic poses ranging from 2 minutes to 5 minutes, in order to encourage more fluid and quick drawing techniques- a challenge for everyone, including myself!
Once everyone was warmed up, we had a short tea break and a look around at each others drawings, before getting back into 5 minute poses, 10 minute poses, finally ending as we began- with 2 minute poses.
Everyone I spoke to seemed to get a lot out of drawing quickly, and it was great to draw such a great and dynamic model. Thanks Feryal!
Above are a couple of my sketches, and I’ll be posting some pictures on this very blog of the drawings by those who came along.
Hope to see you next week for ‘Drawing Movement’- more info soon!
