Last week several of us took part in the life drawing initiative tied into the Channel 4 series Today's Nude. Free life classes were staged across the country to encourage people to start drawing & of course we couldn't resist going along to the Bristol class as it was just down the road from the studio.
The first episode of the series is online here. It features Maggi Hambling talking about her approach to & philosophy of life drawing. She's a terrific artist & it's fascinating viewing.
Those of us in the 'Arthur Christmas' story team have started a blog dedicated to the life classes we've been attending.
I've added some recent sketches to the Urban Sketchers blog here. There are more here too.
I've also put up the first part of my report on my last visit with Ronald Searle.
