GROUNDCOURSE : drawing and painting SKILLS of the MASTERS

Chriswoodartist’s “GROUNDCOURSE drawing and painting SKILLS of the MASTERS” : at THE WEA OMEGA CENTRE, PORTSMOUTH. WEEK 5 :STILL LIFE : Drawing in Colour. The course has proved very popular and is now fully booked. However, we are now reserving spaces for next term, which will focus on PORTRATURE.



Above, the inimitable Andy Cunningham at work on his pastel study of the maritime themed still life. Andy, a professional yachtsman, very kindly contributed a Walker Log (in the box), Sou’wester and Sextant to my collection of flags, chronometer, compasses, assorted brass lamps, flags, a Flying Dutchman Spinnaker and even the side of a classic wooden dinghy !

A lovely double page spread by ©Leslie Jane Craig, whom, in my former job, I used to teach at St Vincent College in Gosport.  Here she is using a variety of coloured markers, resulting in a lively composition !


IMG_2033This was created by my latest student ©Kate Reddy who has only just joined the class and wants to do my EXPERIMENTAL LIFE DRAWING on Tuesday Evenings too ! A glutton for punishment ! A great composition with a good range of smudged mark making creating depth and atmosphere.


© Martin Bean who’s red paper adds to the drama of this cracking piece !

We are now having a half term break and session 6 will resume on Thursday 6.11.14 at 19.00hrs.
