Life Drawing & Merlot April - La Belle Époque!
Time & Location
About The Event
Welcome to an exciting couple of nights where we will explore loose lines, contours and styling inspired by the work of Lautrec. Enjoy a wine and delicious gluten free grazing plate. Develop your life drawing skills over two social nights out. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was one of my favourite artists when I was a teenager. While my friends were out riding horses I was repoducing drawings and paintings done by Lautrec, dreaming of becoming an artist and graphic designer. I emersed myself in the La Belle Époque the 'Golden age or beautiful age'. In this era, France’s cultural and artistic climate markedly flourished. Interestingly Van Gogh and Lautrec both studied Japanese art together. Both became fans, proclaming their appreciation for Japanese influences.
You maybe familiar with the famous Lautrec posters, featuring loose lines, contours and styling, from the movie Moulin Rouge. However, you may not have known that the styling of the cabaret dancers was the arrival of Japonisme. This was the birth of France as the leader in fashion, the birth of fashion illustration styling and the birth of graphic design.
In these 2 nights of life drawing Kerry-Anne will de-emphasize proportions to rather emphasis loose lines, contours and styling. The first night will focus on styling tips and techniques without a model. The second night will feature a live female nude model and further tips and tecniques for capturing beautiful stylised figures.
