Our New Drawing term started in Perth today. I would like to give a big welcome to the new students, Julie Ann Canal, Susan Cantrell, Margaret Roeterdink and Kirsty Seymour and looking forward to meeting Anh Trieu . And a very big thank you for my “come back” students, Sjoukje, Inga, Jill, Lynley, Vicki and Jolene for returning to support me. I am very excited to share with you all my passion for drawing and hope that we are going to have loads of fun and create beautiful artwork together in the coming weeks.
Today’s drawing class was all about shapes and tone and the best drawing tool for that I thought would be charcoal. I am very happy with the drawings we did today. Sjoukje decided boats did not do it for her and finished the beautiful Boab Tree drawing that she started last term. We worked in pen, pencil, pen and wash and in charcoal. Inga unfortunately left before I could take a photo of her work but I will get one from her and post that next week. Thanks for a wonderful class – it’s a pleasure working with such lovely people.
