Foreshorten

‘portray or show (an object or view) as closer than it is or as having less depth or distance, as an effect of perspective or the angle of vision.’

Sunday 15 March 2020

A pair of giggly friends came for the first time, one a seasoned creative, the other a total newbie, exploring this discipline, totally inexperienced; sometimes it requires as much much bravery on the part of artist to see themselves move through the creative process as it does the model to allow themselves to be seen unfiltered.

And While Megan Was In Merthyr

James was working our Little Man session in the centre of Cardiff. This turn up and sketch, no need to book session has been running for 10 years now and there is no intention to change that anytime soon.

Coronavirus And Us…

Surely, if we wanted to get through this quickly and with minimum impact we would be ‘confined to quarters’. All of us. Only small teams of signed off workers ought to be allowed on the streets and they would be delivering food to those in need. Total lockdown, although economically crippling, would seem the swiftest way to get through this.

When A Model Can’t Keep Still…

However, it provides an opportunity for artists to work on repeated movements and to hone their speed drawing skills and for the model to have an energetic fitness workout 🙂

Charcoal And A Cuppa

This Tuesday our super friendly group met up for their weekly fix of charcoal and a cuppa, and, as always, such a fab and diverse mix of artists and styles emerged.

Competition?

So, we asked the National Museum if we could deliver once a month life drawing in various rooms in the museum with a model or models reacting to the artworks in that room. We committed to delivering a minimum of one session in Welsh and also having a Welsh speaking artist on hand at all others. We said we’d work at times to suit the museum and would tweak the proposal to suit the museum.

Whitchurch Artists

Voluntary Arts Wales has initiated a growing network of public life drawing classes to support both the community and life drawing alike. They use municipal buildings and spaces that have fallen out of regular use (like libraries and churches) to host weekly sessions- advocating for arts involvement to the wider populace, regardless of background or experience.
