A Week of Life Drawing
What a great week I have just had 20th – 24th April five days of total immersion in high energy life drawing. I was lucky to take part in a block course run by TLC in Te Aroha with 13 other people, the tutor was Christina Earl a lovely lady full of beans and high energy. Over the five days we had three different models (Sally, Christine and Tina) who worked hard and injected more energy in to the mix. We were drawing from 9.30 to 4.30 each day, learning life drawing techniques i.e. left and right handed blind contour, positive and negative space block drawing, line weight drawing, weighted block drawing, drawing with other mediums and drawing, painting implements, by the end of the week there was more than a few of us that could hardly lift our arms above our heads but it was still an amazing week and I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to take part in it.
