Syn Studio Watercolor Class, Long Pose

November 7, 2013

Last night was the end of the figure drawing section in my 10 week watercolor workshop at Syn Studio. We did three days; fast sketches, portraits, and then this long pose. We were working with photographer Rebecca Carins as our model. I’ve become an instant fan of her work. And, in fact, she’s just released a book – the opening is tonight in Toronto if anyone is at large in the city.


I’m seeing some solid progress among the student work as we continue to invest in the process. Everyone was able to complete this complex setup in 3 hours, and in general this mix of tight drawing and loose washes is starting to click with people. If anyone’s interested in the course, we’re running it again in January. Here’s the info. (Syn Studio)

    Beautiful! Are you going to post some of the students’ sketches?

      I’m usually so occupied during the class I haven’t had a good opportunity to get pictures of any students work. If anybody post something up on the Facebook I’ll redirect.
