On Thursday 5th November at Uni we had a guest speaker arrive for a taught workshop. This was artist Amelie Hegardt, she is works across mediums to collaborate with clients and to create her own imagery, she uses different mediums such as pastel, crayon, animation, ink, and paint, she has an intuitive feel for the human form. Amelie was originally born in Sweden, but now lives and works in London.
We created drawings in her workshop, from looking at models we had in front of us, these consisted of some smaller drawings and some on a larger scale. Each time we started a new drawing the time frame would be different. We used different mediums, such as the colours and sizes of our pens and pencils, and even using coloured paper to block over or under pieces we had drawn and created.
On that day I felt like I had learnt more about drawing and creating pieces of art. I felt like I had definitely improved from the way I drew at the beginning of the session, to what I was producing towards the end, throughout the five and a half hours we were with her.
Below are some of my pieces from throughout the whole day –
