It was the Macquarie Towns Arts Society 'Spring Exhibition' in Richmond this weekend. I often forget but remembered this time and put three paintings in.
today's portraits at the Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop, at WSU in Richmond.
a 60 minute oil study and a 60 minute watercolour study
day 2 of the Workshop, a couple of work in progress photos of the second piece
and a photo of Alan using my other piece to demonstrate how to hollow out the clay
Alan Somerville is a Master Sculptor and one of Australia's most important Artists, He is a friend of the Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop and has given many workshops over the years. This weekend he is giving a 2 day Clay Sculpture workshop.
Not having had any experience in clay sculpture or modeling it was good to spend day one floundering around with clay.
The day consisted of 4 quick pencil sketches of the model and then a start with the clay, two different poses and two different techniques... and we will be back tomorrow to add some more!
