Sketch Class Day 16

Tuesday’s sketch class consisted of two 50 minute poses and we had one of my favourite models posing for us again. If you follow my lifedrawing posts, you have probably seen her in “sketch class day 2″ :)

Still Life with a Pink Paintbox

Last year in February I decided to order this lovely pink Roberson style palette from The Little Brass Box Company. I have waited for long nine months for it to arrive and was very happy to FINALLY be able to use it for the first time in November. It is a sturdy and beautiful palette handmade in England by John Hurtley. John was very helpful to me and kindly answered all my questions. After I had placed my order, I was still thinking of switching to a Binning Monro style palette, because of the huge flat mixing space. I really enjoy mixing watercolour on a flat surface but the size of the Roberson paintbox seemed a little more convenient to me…

I’ve been using my palette almost every day since November when suddenly it occurred to me that I could order another Robbie with no deep wells at all. All flat! Long story short, I have been extremely lucky and got my new flat Robbie very quickly. Of course from The Little Brass Box Company :).

With a heavy heart I decided to sell my first palette via my friend’s ebay account. My new box is all I ever wanted and I don’t really need two palettes. Still I feel very sad and I will miss my pink Robbie, so I decided to paint it along with my favourite mug and the new Sketchbook book by Charles Reid (in the background).

If anyone is interested in the ebay auction, it ends tomorrow! Please click HERE for more details!

Sketch Class Day 12

Yesterday our model decided to do a standing pose first, so I thought it would be nice to place both poses together on one page. I would like to combine these more often, but until yesterday it hasn’t really been possible. Normally on Tuesdays our models like to pose either seated or reclining, because of the long posing time (50 minutes).

Unfortunately I had a terrible migraine yesterday so I wasn’t able to fully concentrate on my sketches and stopped working about 15 minutes before the end of the clothed pose. I am a little disappointed, because the poses were nice and I feel like I could have done a better job…

Anyway, here they are, two 50 minute poses, first nude and then clothed. Pencil, watercolour (and lots of pain) in my lovely Saunders Waterford sketchbook, 28 x 38 cm
