Some great drawings from ULU Art Society life drawing class

Every Wednesday from 6.30 to 9.30pm, there is a three hour stint of artistic wizardry going on at the University of London Union art society’s life drawing session under the tutelage of Simon Tolhurst. It’s a very relaxed and friendly environment with a great mix of fast and long poses.

Here’s a couple of the pictures from last night:

Andrew Berridge has a really clean and appealing style and is able to produce great portraits (this is an excellent likeness of the model as well):

Arianna has a distinctive style to her drawings. Her weapon of choice seems to be blue pencil, and it sure works well for her:

Simon, ULU’s excellent life drawing teacher, has recently completed a fantastic new painting. He explained that being able to paint the entire thing with the model posing for the duration of the painting, made a huge difference. Check out more of Simon’s pictures at his blog here.
