Some stuff from a "Lifeliner"




I'm newly posting on this blog at the invitation of Clive (thankyou so much, Clive!) I am with the "Lifeliners" in Comox valley, at Vicky Scott's studio. I look forward to showing a few drawings every now and then on this blog and invite anyone interested to see my other blog:

More great Live drawing tips from a series in the N.Y. Times

http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/11/18/the-chain-of-energy/?hp

RIP Nathan Oliveira 1928-2010

from the Bay Area Figurative School
“My work has usually been universal. The figures have never really been that specific. They’re not clothed; they’re not identified with any trappings that specifically tie them down to 2005. It could be today, but they could be from some other time, a long time ago. So I do connect all the way back to the fundamentals of the cave.”
- Nathan Oliveira Quotes

Nude with Crossed Legs (1960)
Standing Nude-Red Foot (1961)

Campbell River Open Studio Fall Session





Tuesday, November 16, 2010


monday I went drawing for two sessions at Henri's Comox Life drawing group in her studio/gallery. Very pleasant day, check it out if you fancy some daytime drawing. See the poster below for info or enquire at info@marinerslookout.ca .

Found the blog of an old friend who was ahead of me in College (and life) and worked as a bg painter and layout artist in animation with the big boys, well, the large rodent, in the US; he's now living in Seattle and seems to be life drawing very regularly, and posting to a blog. Great stuff. Click on Peter Moehrle.

Posted for Jannet





Jannet forwarded the bottom jpg for posting...adjusted it digitally to match the original drawing on white paper...bottom one has an almost intaglio nice feel with the 'plate tone'.

Click on the image above to go to a series of old 40's photos of artists and students and drawing groups doing life drawing. Picked up the link from Will Steven's Bristol Life Drawing blog.

Chloe Piene; click here to see figurative work by this artist. You can then click on 'some work I have made' or 'daily shit'. Former is much more interesting; figurative drawing using very basic outline/contour creating unnerving imagery.

Wendy Artin; click here to see figurative work by this artist. Wonderful absence of colour in her work from the model and statue; pure light and shade on form.

As mentioned by Jannet at drawing on Thurs. 'Body Worlds' is in Vancouver until the middle of the month. Click here for more info.

Donald O. Colley has a blog with a series of great demo videos along with frequently added examples of his drawing and sketching. He does the demos for Faber-Castell drawing materials. From his main page, just go to 'Darn Videos'. Click here to visit his website/blog
