Save the Med colouring book

There's a charity based here in Mallorca called Save the Med and they're producing a colouring book for kids so I've done three drawings for them. This was great fun and a good excuse to draw some mermaids and octopuses!

Mark

Our model at last night’s life drawing session at SCAC was Mark who was excellent to draw. Here are some of my daubing. He liked the blue one so I gave it to him. I have so many piling up at home I was happy to let it go.

Elle

At last night's life drawing session at The Sussex Arts Club in Brighton we were given the opportunity of drawing the fabulously fit and toned Elle who teaches balancing and circus skills.
I hadn't drawn her before but she's amazing! Here are my better efforts. Thanks for a great session Elle!

Naomi!

At the Sussex County Arts Club life drawing session last night we were honoured to have as our model the very popular titian haired beauty- Naomi Wood. I haven’t drawn her for over a year and she’s still one of the best. These days she’s branching out into writing and is presenting her poetry live next week at the Duke of Wellington pub here in my new adopted funky town of Shoreham by Sea. I think she said it was on Tuesday but check the Wellie’s website if you want to go.
