I am back at the Mary Ward Centre this term, for a mix of drawing and painting. This session was a refresher on measuring size and proportion of objects and transferring them to paper using the sight size method. Our tutor, Sophie, encouraged us to use a bamboo skewer as a measuring tool, and certainly found this much more consistent than using a pencil. We chose a series of objects, gradually increasing in complexity. I did enjoy this when I got to the "flow" stage.
Looking at these boards in the studio, I ca see why I was completely take in by the work of this artist at the Mall Galleries earlier this year.
