Our First Winter Tuesday Art Club

It was great to see everyone, and to work with our new group.

We did some interesting contour drawings as we warmed up - these are also mini still-life drawings which you can set up for yourself anytime and anywhere.

We also created some silly character's in our group and then you did some very individual works exploring ink, charcoal pastel, smudging and ways of looking at the elements of a whole. Thank you all for bringing your enthusiasm, and great ideas, to our first studio.

Next week, you can work from the character you started this week(or create a new one), using paint and text. In this case, text means words that you
visually incorporate into your work. We will be exploring exaggeration through words, and using both images and text.

Please try to find time to draw or write in your sketchbooks everyday. And it doesn't matter
what so much as that you get something down.. just a few minutes is fine.

Something to think about:
Whats and Thats start to work together the more you practice...what's a what and what's a that?
If you like, you can show and tell us your thoughts about this next studio.

Thanks again for your efforts!
