GREY EYE SOCIETY

The Melbourne drawing class for drinkers with a drawing problem

These are Monica’s drawings from the last portraiture class! I love the progression you can see in these as they shift from intuitive contour line drawings to sketches.

Currently enrolling for our July/August Course

Hi guys our next course is starting on the 23 July and running till the 20 August, it’s going to be the last winter course as after this class i will be travelling to Italy and France to do a little hands on research into Wine and Art.

In this course we will be looking at how seasons, well mainly winter affects wine and also at the construction of the picture plane i know this sounds pretty boring but it’s not it’s actually the ability to form what you see in the world into a flat picture plane. There is so much to consider when we are drawing that our actual composition is one of the last things we think off. We will still train in understanding line and tone but during our drawing we will also aim to find a strong compositional sense.

I would highly recommend this class to someone who has done the class before because in these sessions we will be learning drawing skills which i have never taught before and tasting wine with a fresh new mindset.

Winter Terroirs

With this ghastly winter weather in Melbourne we’ve decided to focus some of the positive things that come with the season.

Wintery wines…

In our drawing classes we will focus on drawing out a sense of landscape out of various, still life subjects, and with this topic i will be teaching a new method through which we can better understand scale, proportion and composition within our drawing practice.  

In terms of wine we will be looking at wines from all over the world which come from various cold regions it will be a mixture of reds and whites but the majority of wines will be red.
