London Life Drawing 2

Our local life drawing group came to an abrupt end a while back, sadly. Here are a few images from the last couple of evenings.  

Places and faces

Places and faces

My favourite way to come up with new faces is to sit in a train station or airport and watch the inspiration literally walking past. I’ve been trying to get more fullness into my cartoon faces in the last 6 months, and quite pleased with how filled out some of these incipient characters are.

Working from history

Working from history

I always encourage my students to work from the masters of the past, as well as from contemporary artists and the world around them. It’s been too long since I last took that advice myself. This piece was painted in 2013, I think, from Roman Girl at a Fountain (1875) by Pierre Bonnard. I was […]

Life drawings

I took up life drawing at 17, not long before I decided I was going to apply to college. It sadly wasn’t a part of our formal study in NCAD but I try to go to classes around Dublin as regularly as I can possibly afford. I’m currently tossing a load of them into the […]

Kildare Notebook Project

I took part in the 2013 Kildare Notebook Project over last Summer and Autumn. It was interesting how the foreknowledge of exhibition effected the work I did in the notebook – this looks to me like something I would have done when I was 18 or 19. Interesting experience all the same, I would hope […]

Some screenshots from Derry GameCraft

Quick collection of screenshots before judging commences. The three of us are approaching the 28th hour without sleep. So tired!

Through a combination of visual and audio […]
