Sorry this update is delayed, but I was trying to finalise the models. I have now done so;
14 February (Hey, that’s Valentines!) – Jasmine will be our model for the evening. This is a nice treat as, after being our final model last year, she relocated to Melbourne. But, being back in Perth for a couple of weeks has allowed us the chance to have her back in.
21 February – Nin will be in for the first time in a rather long time (dang motorcycle accident keeping him out of commission).
For those of you who missed Kiah when she came in, you missed out on a special treat as she showed up revealing that she is 7 months pregnant. I’ve told her that I will certainly have to have her in again in the next 4-6 weeks as it really made for a wonderfully different human shape to draw.
In other news, but still somewhat related, there will be series of intensive seminars/workshops happening on Tuesdays in March from the 8th-29th in the same room which we do life drawing in. Titled ‘Drawing the Dead: 2D Facial Reconstruction, Anatomy & Portraiture‘, participants will produce an anatomical portrait, drawing on the techniques of art and 2D forensic facial reconstruction.
The conveyor for the event is Susan Hayes (with whom I originally organised the UWA life drawing sessions) who specialises in the facial approximation of archaeological remains. I did a 3D facial reconstruction workshop with Sue (using a replica skull and clay to rebuild muscles, fat and flesh) which was a great experience to learn about what goes on beneath the surface. If you’re interested, or want to know more, you should contact Susan on susan.hayes @ uwa.edu.au
