Sometimes at the end of the day the Big Pencil studio is just a visual treat. Working here with the favourite red velvet drapery, our resident skeleton, ladder and a stick thrown in for luck, the drawings worked so well together.

Winter term at Big Pencil has seen some experimenting with acrylic painting from a live model. Believe it or not these works were some of the first paintings participants had ever attempted and were made within restriction of the one hour pose.

Local artist and educator Leila Boakes gave workshop participants a great treat on a Saturday in July by showing us her technique with colour acrylics. We worked over one long day to paint a complex tableau of still life objects. Everyone was weary by the end of the workshop but very proud of our efforts. The results speak for themselves.

Andy Warhol and Flower based on the photo of Dennis Hopper. Composite drawing, charcoal on paper. Six people, two squares each, thirty minutes… and viola! Andy would approve.
There are still a few places left in the Winter term Tuesday and Thursday series. Book now to enjoy a productive winter evening.
