Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands Life Drawing Session

A week ago to I taught my last Covert Characters Life Drawing class for the year and I couldn’t have asked for a better night! Friends and familiar faces were there and  Silhouettê d’Amour was fantastic as Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands.

I really enjoyed experimenting with watercolor pencil and water brush at the last life drawing class I attended so I thought I would try some more. I like how quickly I can brush in some shading and darken shadows by drawing over the top.

Reminder: This Wed August 30th will be the last class I will be teaching for the year! We have the lovely  Silhouettê d’Amour,  model and amazing cosplayer,  posing as Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands! So join us for an evening of art and fun!

I had a great time at Oz Comic-Con this weekend! Thank you to everyone that came by my table and supported me with your kind words and purchases.

Like every event I could not make it through without my wonderful helpers and friends <3 I am especially grateful to my sister and Ben for coming to help on Sunday when I did my first ever workshop.  That is a photo of me doing last minute revision and notes for my presentation looking deceptively calm.

Teaching Life Drawing Class March 8th Covert Characters

 

I will be hosting the “80’s Rock Queen” themed life drawing session at Covert Characters this Weds night, March 8th, at Workshop in Fitzroy. I will be speaking a bit about proportion and drawing while observing the figure at the start of the class and answer any questions and providing more tips during the mid point break.

Covert Characters is a great class for anyone new to life drawing or artist wanting to join a causal friendly group to enjoy sketching.

I will be teaching more classes this year and hope to announce them more in advance in the future. Be sure to follow the Covert Character’s Facebook page to keep updated on up coming events 🙂

Examples of my sketches from the last few sessions this year:


Greek Mythology Life Drawing Session

Thank you to all of you that joined me for my first class teaching life drawing for the year! Our fantastic model, John, took inspiration from classical statues for the night’s poses. It was truly lovely to hear that my tips on drawing proportion and observation helped. I was very impressed with the quality of everyone’s drawings that evening.

I will announce when I will be hosting my next class soon.
