The Macquarie Towns Arts Society had an exhibition in the Stan Stevens Studio, in the Deerubin Centre (Regional Art Gallery and Library) in Windsor, 21st - 23rd July.
As part of the exhibition various artists demonstrated painting throughout the weekend.
On Sunday morning I did this oil 24 x 18 painting of 'Dave' over four 20 minute poses.
He has a fine bushy beard, and I decided to just give it an impressionist look in the time available, and maybe add more to it at a later date.
On Saturday 22nd July, the Tap Gallery in Darlinghurst had an all day session of life drawing as a fund raiser.
Lunch was provided in the price of $35.00, and there were about 10 artists drawing and painting.
From 10am 'till 5pm there were 4 models holding single and combined poses, which sometimes made it difficult deciding which ones to draw!
These drawings are two x 20 minute poses each.
The first, charcoal
30 x 22
The second Conte 700 x 500
This seems to be becoming a regular yearly feature at the Tap Gallery, and they also run an all day open air session on a ferry in the Summer.
