Today, we had a life drawing session with Amelie Barnathan, instead of the standard life drawing we used surrealism as a starting point. We watched the following video, to help us get in the zone for surrealism.
The session felt like good timing, as it was right after assessment. Therefore, I felt comfortable to just to relax and draw whatever and however. This is quite unlike me as I usually focus fully on what I’m drawing and for what reason I’m drawing it. These aren’t my best drawings and I’m out of practice with drawing the male form however, I think they have a certain energy. Also, to help with experimenting with surrealism I tried using different paper colours and also overlaying them. I think this had a really good effect and I’m looking forward to trying it again in the future.
