Love Drawing Podcast 1 - All About Life Drawing with Mayko Fry

Hi everyone,

I’m excited to release the first Love Drawing podcast. This first one is with myself and Mayko (see many of her drawings in the Gallery). In the coming weeks, we’ve got some really exciting guests lined up, so please watch this space! They’ll be released once every one or two weeks.

In this episode, you’ll hear about learning from life drawing masters, techniques such as the anatomical approach to life drawing and why life drawing is an important practice.

We talk a bit about Watteau’s drawings – here are some examples:

And we also talked about Rubens:

We also talked about drawing animals – so I wanted to repost this sketch from Simon Tolhurst, because for some reason I just love it:

This a quick sketch Simon did of a fox that he caught napping in his garden. I think it shows how skilled he is with a pencil and the picture has a lot of character.
