About the Event
So I know we are doubling up on the equines having two horsey sessions in a row but honestly, they couldn't be more different PLUS this time has the addition of spotty dogs too!!
That's right, we are going to be drawing THE most astonishinly gorgeous Appaloosa horses & ponies with their equally spotty canine friends - I'm literally giddy with excitement about it! With hugest gratitude to the wonderful Greetja @humanhorseacademy in the Netherlands who has been super generous with the imagery she has supplied for us, we are going to be dreaming in spots for days to come after this!
This session is going to be wonderful for building drawings with relationships between the subjects as both video and photos are often of multiple animals, and sometimes with their people too. Greetje and her daughter work in the most beautiful soulful way with their animals and it is completely joyful to observe. I almost cried at one of the videos but I promise to hold it together on the night!
ALL levels of creatives are welcome to these sessions, any age or ability! You can expect is to find an encouraging group of animal-loving artists at the Elephant in the Room sessions, the atomosphere is always warm and inviting. The challenge of drawing animals can seem daunting at first but you are great company here, and although the sessions are essentially unguided, I am always delighted to talk through techniques and materials as we draw.
DO BRING PLENTY OF PAPER - you will get through a lot! The rest is up to you, but I recommend choosing materials that move quickly across the page for those moving animal studies.
PLEASE ARRIVE IN PLENTY OF TIME - the sessions are always jam-packed with footage so I try to start promptly at 7pm so it's a good idea to jump on the zoom ten mins beforehand to get settled. I can of course let you in if you arrive late (I'm no meany!) : )
I can't wait to draw with you!
7pm-9pm (UK TIME) This is an UNGUIDED session of Animal Life Drawing. Materials: Whatever you like! I do recommend LOTS of paper though as you'll get through it!£12.00
