About the Course

Introduction to Figure and Life Drawing with Jamie Sinclair.

This workshop is aimed at anyone who is interested in doing life drawing but has never done figure drawing from life before. Jumping into doing life drawing for the self taught artist can be a little intimidating. This workshop will be split into two halves. The first half will look at techniques for sketching out the human form from life and how to set your sketch up and what to focus on.

The second half of the workshop will be a guided life drawing session with experienced life model Star Love (pictured). We will spend time working on quick sketches and the benefit of this and what is important to focus on and then work on a few longer studies. During this time Jamie will be on hand to offer advice and guidance in a friendly and relaxed setting.

Some equipment will be available such as pencils, charcoal and paper but if you have your own please do bring this or if you would like to work in another medium or you would like to use an easel please feel free to bring these along.

Lunch will not be provided on this course so please do bring a light lunch with you (though there are plenty of food outlets near by.) Tea, coffee, biscuits and cake will be available throughout.

Gesture line.

Techniques for measuring scale from life.

Body proportions.

Quick sketching and the benefits.

Benefits of working with a model.

Working with a life model.
