We’ve spent our second winter in Spain with the drawing groups and it’s thrilling to see their skills sharpen each week … and to increase our own skills as clothed model and drawing guide! Over the years we’ve developed a pattern in our 2 hour classes that we’ve found brings on the quickest results –
15 minutes speed drawing of 30-second poses
a 30 – 45 minute long pose (or 2 shorter 20 minute poses)
an interesting still life that sometimes generates groans at the challenge
It’s been a privilege for us to meet and work with such fabulous people who have become valued friends. We hope to share their drawings and as they send us their images we’ll open a new page and have a gallery of their work. We might even persuade them to send an early and a later drawing to show how they’ve progressed.

Six views of a long pose; graphite and conté. Note how each person has their own style and to preserve this individuality is most important.
A sketch study – few lines and yet character is so well captured.
