Drawing group – South Africa

An enthusiastic group gathered in Michele’s Pilates studio for our drawing workshop in February. The perfect space has long-ranging views across the valley and scents of rosemary and lavender waft in through the line of picture windows. The room crackled with creative energy and here is some of the work produced that day:

We have uploaded drawings to the STUDENT’S WORK page.

We are very proud to be able to update that page with some portraits by Mick from our Spanish group. Here’s a preview:

SAATCHI’S ABSTRACT SHOWDOWN

COMPOSITION

Here is my entry in this competition and if you clicky you’ll go to my Saatchi page where you may view the painting in full resolution and see what COMPOSITION is about. There are 3333 entrants … wooo … 50 will go through to the next round on community votes – that means you can help by ‘liking’ my entry on my Saatchi page – and 250 will go through by jury decision. From those 300 the judges will pick 30 to go forward to the next round. Ultimately there’ll be a winner!

OUR PORTRAIT by ARTBOY68

portrait 90 Miles and Pippa on the high seas.

This link will take you to Artboy68′s Blog where you’ll find the portrait that Scott has done of us. Scott’s project, ‘100 Portraits in 20 Weeks’ has been running for some time now … we’re number 90 of the 100 so this must be the start of week 19! We’ve been following his progress with great interest, enjoying his style and rendition of so many different people. We feel privileged to be part of his project and to be captured by a true master. Thank you, Scott.

Marbling …

… is not just for paper or fabric. Once you get the hang of the techniques you can marble just about anything … even a pair of shoes.
