Life Drawing Session number 3!

We should have been sketching outside on Saturday 4 July – it was positively balmy for a mid-winter’s day in Cape Town! The scout hall in Newlands was full of artists and their energy, if not too much actual heat.


Our model this week was Desire, with whom most of our members are familiar, as she was one of their favourites from last year’s life drawing sessions.


She has an old fashioned elegance in face and manner, which lends itself most beautifully to life drawing poses.

Thank you Desire, for your poise and your patience. Our artists once again left with sketchbooks packed with inspiration and feelings of fulfillment from their morning’s work.

2011 Drawing Competition

The official end-of-year AGM is always celebrated with a drawing competition, and what incredible artwork our members produce, year after year.  And this year we had a theme which was a bit perplexing but an amazing array of interpretations of “One Fell Swoop” were put forward.
And walking away with top honours – as he did last year! was Paul Webb with his drawing entitled 1st July 1916.  Well done Paul!
In second place was Fiona Gawronsky with ‘One Fowl Swoop’, and 3rd prize went to Eugene Schuddinh with his interpretation, ‘In one Fell Swoop’.
