I ♥ the Nelson Street Art project. Proper lovely vibes down there this afternoon. So much effort gone into transforming a drab 80’s concrete jungle into a full on garden party, Brizzle style. Blown away by the astroturf and big blocks of live plants adding to the mix. Big-ups to Bristol City Council (who’d ever thought I’d hear myself saying that!) for having the chops to spend a not insubstantial amount of public cash (word on the street is upwards of 80k) on something so downright cool.
Well, that was a fun session. Mostly straight drawings again… apart from one – sorry Miss model! Late night tonight tho, popped to #bristweetdrinks hosted by @G2Bristol and caught up with the local tweeps after Life Drawing this evening. Always a pleasure to have a cheeky pint and a chinwag with the Bristol twitterati. So, aided by a nice downtempo mix CD thrust fortuitously into my hand by Mr Hatrick of the Sunday Slouch Sessions at the Golden Guinea just before I left the Kings Arms pub tweet-up, here’s the result of tonights’ session
As always, for full screen versions of tonights pictures just click one of the images below and navigate using the arrows at the top and bottom of the page – enjoy!
A friend of mine Dave V once described me as ‘The M C Escher of Life Drawing’ – I kinda like that! Tonight I’m posting a selection of life drawings from Sketchbook_Black_11 to make up for the lack of life class this evening. You can see how I got that title below…
I create these images by shmushing together 2,3 or 4 short poses into one picture. Its not entirely random, though it may seem like that. I draw sections of the model that most interest me in a particular pose until time runs out, then map a section or line that roughly fits an area of negative space or nice curve, line or shape in the new pose and carry on regardless. It sometimes gives a kind of fractured, Dave-style Marcel Duchamp ‘Nude descending a Staircase‘ type feel which I really like. Anyways, read on for a nice selection of artwork past. I’m very fond of these drawings, I hope you enjoy them too – click ‘continue reading’ to view the selection -> Continue reading Classic Life Drawing 21_10_10→
