Life drawing demonstration and drop-in session at Rojales artists caves. • Martin the artist
Whilst being the exhibiting artist in the Sala Mengolero (art gallery) of the Cuevas del Rodeo (artists' caves in Rojales), Martin Robinson has been running free weekly painting demonstrations/workshops there.
The final workshop he is offering will be life drawing on Monday 27th from 12 noon to 2 pm when he will be painting Italian model Alex B in oils whilst offering anyone else the opportunity to have a go free - although there will be a box for donations towards the model's fee.
Although the nude is not the subject generally chosen by those starting to paint, Martin has found, like so many other artists before him, that it is essential in developing the skill creating confidence for the artist. (It is often said, "If you can draw life, you can draw anything!")
He hopes by running an open life drawing drop-in session to demystify the subject and produce interest in those who wish to develop their artistic skills.
The photos attached show Alex B sitting for artists and a picture of model Victoria painted in oils by Martin during one of his previous drop-in sessions at the caves.
