 Joanna Commings Joanna Commings – Figure it out
The fully booked Saturday figure drawing workshop that took place on the 28th of September had a staggered start as one of the booked sitters was unable to attend. Luckily the brother of the young lady model was roused and quickly arrived to take the place. The session began with 3 freehand 10 minute charcoal sketches, firstly with the model moving and then in sitting poses. The aim was to encourage freer approach and to observe body proportions and the drape of clothing. For some, sketching people was more challenging, but we all learned from the exercise. Finally we produced an acrylic painting of one of the sitters. Joanna Commings is an excellent attentive tutor, offering valued advice and praise where due. The two young models did a splendid job maintaining poses. If any members didn’t attend this session watch out for another as you missed an treat. The next workshop on Saturday 12th October is with one of our regular tutors Tony Hogan with pastel pencils and blocks. If you are quick there are a few place available, go on spoil yourself. Enjoy your painting. D.J.M
