Life drawing. From Life. With Paint.
Bottom left is may fave.
Firstly – thank you to everyone who voted in the poll in my previous post, its a massive step in the right direction :D
Here are the pics from tonight’s session. Felt very low stress, I was really trying to not worry about doing good drawings and just getting on with it.
I used a mixture of Brush Pen, a black Sharpie and watercolours. I’m using a different brand of paper this time round and its subtly different in texture and feel. More absorbent, less ‘accurate’ but dries much faster.
This will probably be my last 10 week term for a good while as another micro noise human will be joining the family around the start of Autumn xx
Had fun tonight – took a while to get warmed up, but the last 45 mins were an eye opener. First time that I used the same technique as the dry point etchings – blending together multiple poses into one drawing, but this time in colour. Fun times…
Had some good news today – 3 of my etchings have been accepted into the New Visions exhibition at the Grant Bradley Gallery opening on Sat Jan 7th 2012 through to the end of the month. This is the first time original DMCropley artwork has gone on sale to the public – hoping for the best! :D
Now that Life Class is over until January next year its time to dig back through the archives and post up classic images from years past. Enjoy…
Last session of term tonight, 1 hour of warm ups then 45 mins of etching goodness. New term starts again on Jan 19th. In the mean time I’m gonna start digging back through the archives and posting choice nuggets of scribbly goodness. I’ve got a good set of plates ready to go to print but no time to do the work… lets see if we can get that changed :D
Its been two weeks since the last life class and I haven’t had a chance to scan any old work, so I’m feeling a bit rusty and this place is starting to collect tumbleweed… but I’m back with a new selection of pics from tonight’s class :D
15 minute poses all night tonight so just a few images. Had fun doing a quick portrait for the last pose which was nice. I tend not to do this sort of thing very often as its a bit too close to my comfort zone and I like to keep it a bit more challenging with the line work
Back again after the half term for another life drawing extravaganza!
Pics from tonights Life Drawing. Slightly longer 15 min poses most of the night so less pics…
Enjoyed tonights session, even though I was knackered. You can usually never tell how its going to turn out while you’re in the middle of drawing ( I can’t anyway… too self-critical) but there’s definitely one pic that hits the spot for me out of this batch. Can you guess which one it is? :D

Starting to get a backlog of etched plates now – which is great, but need to get down the print shop and start pulling proofs. Cutting Mat has arrived, now just need mount card, sticky labels designed and project Dave Sells Art is go :D
