Life Drawings in Charcoal
Amongst my recent life drawing explorations from the St Ives School of Painting was a session focusing on the Chiaroscuro technique. Chiaroscuro means light and shadow in Italian and is a classical technique that was used by Renaissance artists.
And so I had my first experience of drawing a model who was only lit by candlelight! What a privilege to have the chance to try this - and to learn from our tutor Tom Rickman. I'm loving the chance to try these differing ways of making art.
I haven't placed these drawings for sale but am always open to enquiries should any take your fancy - just click the button below to ask me:
