21 Nov Life drawing – what the students say
I thought it would be interesting to hear what some of my students have to say about the classes and to show some of the fantastic drawings they are making.
“I would like to comment on your life drawing classes which I find really exciting. It is many years since I last did any life drawing but in just seven weeks so far I can feel that I have freed up from an initial tightness in my drawing and gained confidence in perceiving proportion, perspective, movement, etc. In particular, your emphasis on gesture and feeling into the pose has been inspiring. I have really enjoyed the way you lead the class through short exercises to open us up before letting us get on with exploring a longer pose in our own way. Many thanks! ” D.V. Lewes
“I am really enjoying the classes, I find them fun, challenging and a great opportunity to experiment with different techniques and materials. Being relatively new to life drawing I really appreciate the teaching input and guidance..” J.R. Lewes
“Louise demonstrates a wealth of experience in life drawing techniques and skills while running the classes. She both challenges and encourages our observation and presentation. We discover new ways of portraying the figure through a wide variety of short or long sketches using both left and right hands and alternative materials for drawing and painting. The models are inspiring also in the poses they take. In all, a valuable practice for me as a sculptor.” C.G. Lewes
