'The Long Pose' of Andrew. From Sunday 15th November 1pm till 5.30pm
Poses- 3 x 2 mins, 2x 7mins, 1 x 20mins 1 x 40mins (approx.)
We looked at Jean Hippolyte Flandrin for inspiration.
This weeks Life Model was, Edmund.
Link to the images and more information about Hippolyte.
The online Thursday Night Life Drawing group and the Mid-Month 'Long Pose' sessions have become a small community of creative adventures, who support and share their work with each other.
We always have a short 'chat and review' session at the end of each session, which is lovely and post our work in a private 'Cluster' gallery each week and today some of our members have allowed me to share some of their recent drawings for everyone to view.
Many thanks, to Carol, Pauline, Sarah and Sue who have allowed me to share these fabulous Life Drawings. There are so many to choose from, 317 from the last 5 months, all of them are wonderful.
The ones I picked are a bit random looking at quick sketches some from longer poses, every drawing has merit in it own right without judgement. All are a spark of Art from the observation of Life Drawing to set alight flames of visual delight. : )
Many thanks go to our Life Models Fra Beecher and Andrew, for their inspiration and interpretations of the references of the human form, from ancient statues, renaissance through to contemporary artists.
