Peter Sharp's workshop pathway to abstraction. Aim was to draw the essence of an object, in this case a piece of dried seaweed.
Rochelle Summerfields, traditional skill with contemporary flair. Within the gallery we sketched a still life of one of the JADA finalists work, Kylie Stoddart's Songs of all those Days, 2014. I had to leave this workshop early so did not get the full outline, but it was nice to be drawing freely.
Nicci Haynes workshop, drawing the invisible. Consisted of drawing sound. First a recorded sound. Over this I drew the white noise of the peoples speech and movement around the gallery and then lastly I concentrated on the speech between two women having a conversation sitting in front of me. I feel like I gained a lot from this exercise. Something clicked in me with this one.
Malcolm King's, it's all black on white. We concentrated on the negative and positive space to produce a small print from soft ezy carve. I left my print at the gallery, so will have to reprint it and post. Carving blocks is always so relaxing.
