These photographs document 'Drawing The Seasons - Winter Life Drawing', held at Globe Arts in Slaithwaite, in February 2023. Participants began working with charcoal on paper, responding to & recording the natural forms found towards the end of Winter.
Drawing from the model we explored the concept of the push & pull of the elements in the last flush of Winter.
One of the unique opportunities these sessions offer is the chance to combine drawings of seasonal foliage & other natural forms with those of the human figure. This presents an exciting challenge & often produces surprising results.
Working on black paper produced vibrant drawings exploring the layering of marks & points of tension in the figure.
