New drawings and watercolours

As the MA studies continue it is often a welcome relief to be drawing at the studio. I recently ran a monoprinting session with a life model, a simple technique of inking a plate, placing paper on top, drawing and lifting off the paper. It tends to suit shorter poses best as overworking the drawing can lead to too much ink on the paper. I was in one of those rare situations where I felt completely relaxed and unconcerned about the results of my drawings. The model gave us one dynamic pose after another, working hard to give us interesting shapes and gestures to draw:

Some watercolours from the regular Friday mixed pose session at Draw:

And a couple of pencil drawings from the long pose:




About Shelley Morrow

Since 2011 I have been predominantly a figurative artist with an interest in conveying expression, movement and gesture. I take the drawings I make and explore them through various processes, particularly embroidery, textiles and etchings. I graduated with a BA in Fine Art at Camberwell School of Art in 1990 and currently taking my MA in Fine Art at Brighton University. I also work at Draw in Brighton, running and teaching Life Drawing sessions
