Gestural Drawing From Life

Weekend One (2-day): June 27 - 28, 2020. Classes run 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.

Gestural Drawing From Life

Students will learn to develop their drawings with a live model using a gestural, expressive approach. With charcoal as the medium, Peter will lead students through layout, composition, and the use of gestural lines to create simple building blocks. Then they will use a system of relationships to develop the finished piece. Participants will explore line-weight, shading, and when to omit details. Let loose and have fun, but with a controlled approach!

Peter Loebel is a visual artist whose inspirations are the human figure and plein-air subjects. He works with charcoal, ink, and watercolour and develops his compositions from quick, gestural drawings done on site. Each representation attempts to break the static condition of the subject, revealing a vibrant movement and creating a transitional snapshot.
