Well it’s finally come around again. The new and even better year of Figure Arts in Bassendean begins this Monday 25 January. Start whittling your pencils. Polishing your drawing boards. Oiling your easels. Cleaning your brushes. Get there early and beat the rush. Remember it starts at 9.30 am sharp.

Jeffup1This is a bit of what I’ve been doing in the break. It’s a work still in progress, called The Man in the Moon.



Christmas Break

Posted: December 6, 2015 in Tuesday Portrait Sessions

We don’t add posts to this blog very frequently, but it is kept up to date. The holiday break is coming very soon. In fact our last day is on the 14th of December. We will be having a shared lunch in the hall at 11.30 as well. Please bring a plate of food if you want to attend. We will be drawing as usual from 9.30 till 11.30 but without the usual coffee break at 10.30.

The 2016 season of FAB (remember that means Figure Arts in Bassendean) begins on Monday 25 January.

That time has come round again. The Portrait Sitting is set to resume this coming Tuesday 3 February at the usual time of 9.30am and in the usual place of St Marks Hall in Bassendean. The news is that this will change in the following week and we will be moving to Monday morning and also to a new venue in the Bassendean Community Hall which is right next to the Bassendean Library and underneath the Council Chambers.  Bonnies Flyer sums it up so here it is:

Hi Everyone. Yes the Portrait Sitting is still active. Just can’t be bothered doing a regular post. I am putting up the drawings from the last sitting this time. We had Erwin as our model and its been 4 years since we last had him.
