All Day, weekend art workshops in Ipswich. 9th and 10th March 2019 with Annabel Mednick

​By popular request, weekend workshops at the studio of Artist Annabel Mednick with model Blue King.  

Saturday 9th March; 10.00 -4.00

An opportunity to be adventurous and take a fresh look at life drawing. Discover the interplay between the Artist and the model.
We explore, using gestural sketches to look for shape and form. Where is the weight, the dynamic, the flow? In longer poses you can start to experiment, looking for essence, energy, and the relation of the figure to the world around.  Expanding ideas, consolidating and building on what is developing.
All Materials Provided, (and coffee or tea and biscuits.)
Places limited to 8 people. Deposit of £20 secures your spot.

ALL DAY OIL PAINTING WORKSHOP; figure of a woman reading.
Sunday 10th March; 10.00- 4.00

The model will be clothed and in a naturalistic pose. There will be lots of demonstration and tuition. We will explore composition, form, pallet, and hopefully work towards developing your own style.
Please bring your own materials and canvas but I will provide coffee or tea and biscuits (Can't work without a beverage!)
I will send you a list of what you need.
Places limited to 8 people. Deposit of £20 secures your spot.

Please feel free to share this on to anyone who may be interested.

Please email me for more details and to pay for your place. 
Unfortunately the deposits are non refundable if you cancel, but you can transfer the place to someone else.

Art Classes in my studio in Ipswich start up again next week.

Wednesday morning (9th Jan, onwards) 9.30 - 12.00
Wednesday evening Life Drawing, (9th Jan, onwards) 6.30 -8.30 pm.
I was wondering if a Thursday Morning Art class would be of interest to anyone? (The other two days are getting full...and we don't want to get too squashed, however its nice when there's a busy buzz.) Message me if you are interested.
Still plenty of room on Wednesday evening though! Please spread the word.

Happy new year and I hope 2019 will be a fab one for you.

Wednesday Evening Life Drawing; Hands

This time, the other half of the group got to take their time and get stuck in.
Usually the hands.... often the most intricate and difficult part to tackle, are also the smallest in the picture.
Here the students have used the opportunity to examine, mark make and make fabulous, huge drawings. 

Wednesday, 5 December 2018


We took the opportunity last week to really look closely at drawing hands. The first hour was spent on gestural poses, thinking about form, or mass or shadow, the dynamic and emphasis...mark making.... in fact all the aspects we look at when exploring the whole form..
Then a good hour on the large drawings...
I think they are spectacular... well done guys!

Everyone is really developing their own style!

I just love how each persons drawing is so different!
