After Hannaford...

Portraits seem to be the theme at the moment. Having attended the Robert Hannaford workshop a couple of weeks ago, I have decided to change the focus of my Friday morning session at Atelier from life drawing to portraiture and working with the draped figure. Neither is something which we have concentrated on so far, so this will give our students a useful opportunity to extend the scope of their work. Go to www.atelierartclasses.com for more details of these classes if you live in the Brisbane area.

Gary, below, is a delightful model, a lot of character, and probably quite pleased to remain in his clothes for a change. The portrait you can see below is only half finished with a single three hour sitting so far. Another three hours or so next week should see its completion, with the refinement of the features that I think a decent portrait requires.

So until this time next week...
