Last week I had the pleasure of doing a surprise teaching session at Covert Characters with the always fierce and fabulous Miss Jane Doe burlesque performer. I hope the many first timers that joined us had an enjoyable introduction to sketching from life!
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.
Jumping back into regular life drawing sessions this year with a fantastic Frida Kahlo inspired class last week with the always lovely Lorelle Rouge modelling for us.
I will be teaching the next Cover Characters session – Greek Mythology on Feb 8th. Before the class I will be sharing some helpful tips on drawing the figure and observing as you draw. So come have fun and make some art!
Photos of me going over some figure drawing tips, answering questions and sketching the final pose of the night were taking by my BFF Nicole (BleedingHeartPrints).
With the large number of artist attending art supplies ran low and I stuck with my humble white colored pencil for the session.

One of my drawing (Her reclining in the “Eyes”costume) ended up winning the art book prize “Metamorphosis 1&2″from the our hosts BeinArt Gallery. I’d like to think it was meant as lovely early birthday present.
We enjoyed a elegant French deco inspired session to end Sept with the gorgeous Lorelle Rouge. She transported us to another era wearing little but gloves and pearls.
Covert Characters Life Drawing has some amazing sessions lined up to see out the year so be sure to look out for those. More details can be found on the website here>
