I have started to use watercolour while life drawing. I am just learning to handle the medium so having to work at speed really helps, one doesn’t have time to worry, one just has to go for it!
This model was getting chemotherapy and so her hair had fallen out and she looked very tired, especially her eyes, it was very haunting, still, I admired this 60 year old woman for not letting cancer stop her. These sketches are from 2012.03.17, Saint Patrick’s Day.

There is life drawing at the Museum of Dance in Stockholm this term. I have never been but I intend to give it a try. It must be great fun drawing dancers in classic poses or even trying to catch them while in motion. I have copied the information from their website and placed it below.
Duffy Sheridan has a YouTube channel where he shows us how to paint a portrait, he seems to be very talented so I’ll be visiting this a lot over the next couple of weeks.
