This is the set up for our Tuesday evening life drawing at Little Man Coffee Co in the centre of Cardiff. Lighting for the model,…
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.
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.
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 🙂
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.
Animals can be difficult to work with, along with children, as the saying goes, but Andy did well, keeping the broad selection of wild beasts under control. Delving deeply into his method acting processes and delivering a tour de force of earthy, visceral and startlingly real animal poses, the assembled artists will be drawing on this session for inspiration for some time to come 😉
Andy made his way to Little Man Coffee Company for a Sunday afternoon session of life drawing with Cardiff Life Model Collective. We are at this venue EVERY Sunday afternoon throughout the year apart from at a few weeks over the Christmas break. The same applies for Tuesday evenings…
This was the last of the Cardiff Arts Free Festivals, the brainchild of Andy and delivered with support of artists and Little Man and poets and musicians in the centre of Cardiff.
It was the last Sunday session of 2019 and Anna took to the stage and wowed all with some fine poses. The artists weren’t too shabby and produced some great work.
Andy had an idea. An idea that we could offer a free festival in Cardiff. A festival that brought together artists, writers and musicians. A festival that stallholders and workshop providers were welcome at no cost to themselves.
