Life drawing at Northampton Museum and Gallery

I haven’t done any life drawing for a while so it was good to get the chance to go a class taught by Chris Fiddes this evening. He’s a local artist who has been drawing and life drawing for many years – one of the highlights was being able to browse through his sketchbooks in the break. His commitment to drawing and in particular life drawing was apparent throughout. We firstly had to work with line to refine an outline and check using a grid to try to identify relationships horizontally and vertically. Later we focused on tone when the model was dramatically lit. This experience reminded me that although I rarely use the figure in my printmaking regular life drawing underpins my drawing of everything.
