TWO DAY LIFE DRAWING WORKSHOP WITH ALAN MCGOWAN
10am - 5pm, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th April 2017. St Margaret's House,3rd Floor Gallery.
The workshop will take place as part of the exhibition and events coinciding with the launch of my new book "Unstill Life".
Drawing is fundamental to working with the figure. There are also a number of different ways of approaching drawing which I believe influence the final results. I will talk about some different methods and be teaching the particular fundamental approaches to drawing which underlie my figure work. We will be looking at how one begins a drawing, at tone, at measuring; what is important and what outcomes we are after.
We will work through a series of poses of varying duration, working on paper and using mainly monochrome materials - charcoal, pastels and paint (a materials list will be provided).
