An enthusiastic group of 8-9 artists are gathering at my studio every Friday morning this month. We had session #3 today. They diligently performed the exercises I suggested and then spent the last hour working on one drawing incorporating the learning from this week’s practice. Some of these folks have almost no experience drawing while others have been at it a while. Today’s focus was on value, that is, light and darks, working in pencil, charcoal, conte, and some other media in some cases. Bear in mind that they didn’t have enough time to finish. Nevertheless, the results so far are exciting. Everyone brought a vibrant energy. Lovely to have the studio buzzing with chatter, laughter and activity. Altogether, an inspiring experience! Can’t wait till next week!
