Entry for Jan 12, 2014

(I'm very happy to note that the drawing skills course I will be teaching on Sundays starting Feb 23 is definitely on, and there is room for a few more people.
It's at OCADU through their Continuing Studies program. 5 weeks, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day.  It's an intermediate level course, covering not just figure drawing, but exploring colour pencils, watercolour pencil washes, ink and mixed media. You can enroll for it  here.)

On the Sunday at the 519 Community Centre's monthly Sunday session, Jimmy was in working. These are a couple of 20-minute studies above, a 25- and a 35-minute one below that and a 15-minute one at the bottom. The top two and the bottom ones are on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper, done with Pitt pen and some additional oil-based pencil shading.
The two just above the last are done on 18 x 24" sheets of 150 lb. Maidstone paper, using water-soluble graphite.
The Sundays run 10 -1 on the second Sunday of each month, cost $10 and are open to all. 519 Church St is the address.I like the brightness and lack of clutter in the room.
