I started a new drawing class today, run by Sue Rae here in Stroud. Drawing in mixed media, which could mean anything. Nice to have a new tutor, and nice to be just drawing. We were exploring line,tone, texture and “narrative” (beats me too)/. I think she mainly wanted to get a handle on what we could do.She insisted that we drew from real objects, which we had piles of. That I liked. I have been to classes where they work from photographs, and that is rarely satisfying. You can work up paintings from sets of photographs, but drawing them seems fairly pointless.
