Last night at Linden we had a great new male model, Carmine, (pronounced "Carmin-eh""), who is also a boxer, as our model. It was great to draw someone who is so present in their body.
This evening we had Tara, who is also an actress & a performer, modelling for us.
On this first session of 2015, we had Millicent, who was 6 months pregnant, modelling for us. It always feels like an honour and a privilege to be able to draw someone in whom the miracle of life is so visibly taking place.
The untutored Life Drawing classes in St. Kilda start again this coming Thursday 29th JANUARY, 7.30-9.30pm- all welcome!
'AWAKENING THE EYE' is a nine-week tutored course about life drawing and meditation. It is suitable for both beginners and practising artists and designers. The emphasis of this course is on your own experience and Presence, rather than the results: the emphasis is on the journey rather than the destination.
'AWAKENING THE EYE' runs every Monday evening at the Linden Centre of Contemporary Art in Saint Kilda. It is coordinated & conducted by Anselm van Rood , D.F.A., a practising artist and experienced lecturer.
The next course will start at Linden on Monday 2nd February 2015. For more information and enrolment please contact Anselm on : (03) 9525 3223 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week's selection shows some of the wide range of styles and media used by people in our group. Our model was Fleur, whose angel-wings tattoo can be seen in Sarah Low's drawing.
Last night, with the end of the year fast galloping over the horizon, we had an old favourite, Lisa, modelling for us.
