Negative drawings , white ink on black paper Catherine's






 Larissa 's drawing collage, woks in progress from Paula (tonal inks) Alyssa's colourful pencil drafts, Tim's 'haute couture' stylised slender ink models and the images of the tools of a typical class show just how much fun we are all having amid hard work. Freda 'Banksey ' is improving every week and we love her pastel work complete with 'creature'aspects.

An absolutely fabulous night in class last night .Beautiful elegant long poses and some wonderful results ensued .Jess is our long and lanky model as she has been practicing her poses.For her second time ever modelling undraped,she did  so well! I have given her the name of the teacher at West Wollongong TAFE who books all there models ,so hopefully Jess and Isaac can get some more work at the TAFE.
Great to see Tim back in class and his little ink drawings were lovely.

It's been a while since I blogged.Have been busy doing Nanny day care for my daughter .
Wednesday night was another great night ,we have another new model and she was beautiful,having  done some ballet training ,we will get some interesting poses sorted for Jessica to do.I hear everyone snickering to that , lol I am prone to seeing how far we can stretch our models muscles .Poor Isaac knows this for a fact .
My favourite poses being muscley back poses !With or without sword.

 We are organising a weekend get together in the next two weeks at Paula's, so we can get our drawings finished.It's a great way to work as we all inspire each other and motivate each other.
