Life Drawing Session with Burlesque Performer Miss Jane Doe

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!


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.


Last Covert Characters for 2016

I finished off my life drawing classes for 2016 with a fantastic anime inspired session at Covert Charaters. Our beautiful model Silhouette d’Amour posed as Ryuko Matio from Kill La Kill with an impressive replica Scissor Blade.

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).

 


Covert Character NEON Life Drawing

Last month I had the privilege to attend another fabulous NEON life drawing session at Covert Character. The Workshop space was changed into a black lit jungle. Our models Hamish and Lorelle were transformed into vividly painted big cats by the talented Suedy @JuicyBodyArt (tiger) and Dale Proposch @daleproposch (leopard).

With the large number of artist attending art supplies ran low and I stuck with my humble white colored pencil for the session.

Covert Characters Life Drawing Tribal Punk Session with Ameena

The last Covert Characters Life Drawing for Oct was high fashion meets Mad Max for a Tribal Punk Session. The slim and serene Ameena posed for us in a beautiful handmade feather mohawk crafted by our host Cindy. We supplied and combined the costume pieces to create the unique look for the session.

Dr Sketchy’s Oct Session with BAM BAM

Last month’s Dr Sketchy’s session featured the unique and beautiful performer and event-maker, BAM BAM. She was like a cocktail of Rock n Roll danger, sideshow humour with burlesque grace.

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.

Last weeks Covert Characters Life Drawing was far out and groovy with the fab Tijana striking some funking poses. Our ears were treated to some ace tunes provided by Kylie, a cool cat who knows where its at 😉

 


Covert Characters Life Drawing – French Deco Session with Lorelle Rouge

Last month I had the privilege to teach 2 life drawing classes. Covert Characters is lucky to have access to some amazing professional models who are not only beautiful subjects but make my job as host easy.

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.
