mixing paint and what happens :)


I often explain the difference between drawing and painting by turning students' attention to the difference between pictures in which lines create the picture (in drawing) and pictures composed out of gradient colour fields and patches (in painting). Mixing hues was new in this class to start with and it was so much fun to watch the experience build up :)

2015 classes blog re-start


Thursday group has three students at the moment. 
They did wonderful drawings of my old leader bag
and new small version of accordion. 
I love to see how they captured the fact that with 
the accordion I took it out and opened AND 
made sounds ! I cannot play it any longer :) I used to

Halloween Special - Skulls

Skulls are such a traditional subject to draw - there is a real richness if visual information. There is also a richness of metaphors of understanding and symbolism. No wonder the image of the skull is so popular.

It's good to explore it's visual qualities from the scratch and judging from these results the patience of slow careful study pays off.
