Portraits and nudes
May 19th, 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed this year’s portraiture workshop at Machynlleth Comedy Festival, during which a dozen artists sketched extraordinary comedian/clown Elf Lyons in an array of poses – some rather dynamic, reflecting the physicality of the sitter and often making the session as much about figure drawing as portraiture.
We had a wide range of experience among the group, from workshop regulars to others who hadn’t drawn since they’d been at school, and as ever a lot of beautiful work was created – including from our youngest ever participant, thirteen-year-old Ruby (bottom left).
Hats off to all! And thanks as always to the festival and the Tabernacle Gallery, whose studio we use.
Elf is currently touring her show Swan, which is huge fun. For information about this and much else, see here.
