Something I haven't attempted at life class before, a portrait. Interestingly, it is the face of the model whose body I drew without a face here! I'm quite happy with this one, more so as I haven't been drawing for a few days and felt very rusty. I didn't attempt to do it with colour pencils as the last time I used colour it was such a disaster I didn't even post it.
I haven't done any drawing this week as I've been attempting to frame some of my drawings. I can now say officially ;) that I have exhibited in Geneva as I have four pictures on show at the club where the life class takes place! As it was at such short notice, I bought cheap frames and attempted to cut the mat board myself and the result is I now have a lot more respect for framers. Well worth the money - I won't be attempting that again! Paul is on show as well as two life drawings - here and here - and one of the cats. I thought my life drawings were too sketchy to include but I was surprised and pleased with how they look framed. I was surprised also by how scary it is to sign my name - I've really got to get into the habit of doing that!
