Pen drawing workshop with Ian Pethers

We had a workshop the other evening with Ian Pethers, who showed us how he establishes his pen and ink drawings, where I thought they seemed quite intricate, was in fact controlled scribble, but very effective, below was my effort working from a photo.

Completed the third and final portrait workshop with Colin Pethick, an excellent artist and tutor, as this was my first attempt at a completed portrait in oils, using a live model, I believe I have learnt a considerable amount about working from life.

First portrait painting in oils, workshop with Colin Pethick (1st stage)

Following a demonstration by Colin Pethick at our local art club, I thought I would attempt a portrait workshop with him, this is over a three week period, one morning per period, to allow each sitting to dry before the next stage, never done a portrait from a model using oils before, so this is a learning workshop, will show each stage as I go.
