Photos: Spirit and Matter 1-day life-drawing workshop

This one-day workshop concentrated on drawing with only one medium and support - charcoal on paper.

Working directly from the life model, the purpose was to capture the physicality and spirit by drawing the energy and underlying infrastructure that holds the 'body' together - to open up to the unfolding of being and capture the sensation of being in the world.

An energetic day with the emphasis not on the outcome, but the heuristic process of drawing accepting the 'nearly right' in order to get going, forgoing early accuracy and precision, letting early strokes determine later ones, using intuition and trusting instinct.
