I don't go out of my way to attend Life Drawing sessions but when they take place at somewhere as beautiful as the Tithe Barn in Landbeach just count me in!
This lady must be one of my favourite models. She doesn't just lie down, she really makes interesting poses that must strain her muscles. The pencil drawing poses last 5 or 10 minutes and the coloured one was for 20 minutes though I did add the colour at home. I haven't met anyone else there who adds the magnificent backgrounds but then perhaps none of them do Urban Sketching?
Doing Open Studios at my own home means so much to me. This is the place where you can see where I work, look at my paints and brushes and ask any questions you want. It is the ethos that started Cambridge Open Studios in the 1970s.
You will find a warm welcome with an offer of elderflower cordial (and maybe a biscuit). I have 2 rooms of paintings plus a table set up with small canvas panels ready painted with a deep blue and a red silhouetted shape of a tree. Here you can try your hand at gilding in gold or silver and can take your finished artwork home - maybe to embellish further.
We also have a lovely garden which unfortunately looks very dry at the moment after temperatures of 39 degrees last week. But we have managed to save most of the pot plants from heat burn and they are very colourful at present.
Looking forward to meeting and greeting art lover from Cambridge and beyond.
