the number of visitors were very good, almost 350 people, and they all loved the studio, with good sales of original artwork as well as cards and prints
This drawing was done in 2009, I have two big drawers full of them, the result of 5 years of regular attendance!! so I may post up a few, every now and then just to break up the still life paintings,
I will be making enquiries about the life drawing classes in this area, I have heard there is one in Castlemaine, which is about 20 minutes from here, (Daylesford ) so watch this space!
it was great to catch up with lots of old friends, and to experience the joy of standing at an easel, and
getting covered in charcoal and pastel dust!!, and then just drawing,
I had forgotten how enjoyable it was, I did about 7 sketches, for the evening but as it has been 2 years and 3 months since my last session, I was a bit scratchy!! The drawing above was done in a 5 minute pose.
Harry is in charge and ran the class well, with lots of good music, a terrific model, and coffee and Tim Tams, how can you top that!!
