Facilitating A Very Informal Drawing Workshop


First the beach gathering on a glorious sunny day on Findhorn beach after gazing at the pod of seals.

Then to start drawing.  The first task was a group drawing.

 The result

Love the vibrancy and energy in this drawing

And then we worked on our own

Hello to all my South Korea followers

Please feel free to comment!

I am suffering from, well I don't like to call it artist block but it's just not happening.  So I am now trying to give it a jig along.  Trying to encourage a bit of flow in the work practice.  Revisiting some tests from earlier in the year

These are just little sketches if you like...so I am not going spend ages trying to get the perfect shot.  The idea is to jog my mind out of its inertia. Left to right thinking I suppose.

Beach Gatherings

Mmmmm it all seems a bit vague at the moment.  You know that moment when you are desperately trying to connect with your work and nothing is happening....

Anyway loving the curly piece of birch and the sea worn piece of hardboard....nice embossment I think

Working at the Moray Art Centre Studio

I have decided that my beach gatherings are going to be very thoughtful.  In that I mean I am going to try to be very selective about what I bring back to the studio.  As usual it takes me time to settle down and get cracking.  I am trying to work out how to start where I left off in Cromarty.

The wild beach at Findhorn on Saturday

The gatherings....

I found myself getting excited with the shadows but the lighting wasn't suitable to make it more exaggerated
