Life drawing has started again in South Hobart

A quick post to say that after a Christmas break, life drawing has started again on Tuesdays in South Hobart - see the LHS of the blog for details.  Today's model was Rob.  A perfect face for Anthony van Dyck to paint!  Alas, he didn't come along, so we just did what we could. 


  1. Hi Gay!!! Happy New Year!!! Nicely done! Is a man bun difficult to draw? Might have to try that....a friend's husband sports one and might be willing to model....hmmmm..... :)

    1. Hi Mit, happy new year! and sorry for the late reply... I'm not getting to the blog nearly often enough. Funnily enough I've drawn this hairstyle on a man before, and even sculpted it. The resulting bust looked like Captain Cook. I'm coming over to see what you're up to!
