A Drawing A Day – Week 13

This was the last week for the current term, so the life drawing and the coloured pencil classes came to an end.  They were very enjoyable but I would not take two classes a week again, as it seemed to take up so much time.  I have signed up for life drawing again but with a different teacher, it will be interesting to see how they differ.  I have been very much drawn (no pun intended) to the figure since starting the regular life drawing.  It is endlessly fascinating…… We went to the National Portrait Gallery on Saturday and saw the John Singer-Sargent exhibition called ‘Portraits of Artists and Friends’.  It was a wonderful show and Singer-Sargent had a fantastic skill for likeness and a lovely quick expressive way with his paintbrushes – it is inspirational to see a Master’s work.  On the less inspirational level, here are my offerings for the week……..

You might wonder at the appearance of an overlocker – well I have been busy with a scrap of fabric that I acquired at a ‘swish’ and made something for my little granddaughter.
