Special Summer Drawing Series

Tuesday Evenings, beginning July 12, 6:30 – 8:30 pm, Semiahmoo Art Center
Instructor: Tony O’Regan
Tony will share some of the expertise he has gained as an artist, architectural designer and instructor at Universities and Art Colleges for over 25 years.

Greetings to my friends in Art!

The two-hour sessions will be on various drawing topics that I think may interest you:

  • Perspective Drawing
  • Shade-Shadow-Reflection
  • Face
  • Figure
  • Boats
  • Horses
  • Village Streets
  • and more!

You can enroll one evening at a time or for a set, as you may find convenient. I hope to see you there!

Refresh your Art Skills this summer! 

This special summer drawing series will include Perspective Drawing, Shade-Shadow-Reflection, as well as focusing on drawing special subject areas, like Face, Figure, Boats, Horses, Village Streets, and others.

The first session will deal with an overview of Perspective Techniques and Principles. The second session will focus on Perspective Applications and case studies. From there, we will go on to Villages and Street Scenes; Drawing the Face; Drawing Figures; Boats and Coastal Scenes; then animals – Horses and Dogs. The classes are intended to be of use to people who wish to draw for its own sake or as an adjunct to painting.

Bring basic drawing materials of your choice – soft 2b or 4b pencil, 8 x 11 paper or larger, and whatever else you may wish to use.

Sessions will run from 6:30-8:30 Tuesday evenings beginning July 12 at Semiahmoo Art Center in the Visual Arts Studio (located at 14601-20 Ave, South Surrey, BC).

Cost is just $25 /session drop-in basis ($20 for Semiahmoo Arts members).

All levels welcome. Numbers are limited, so please pre-register at Semiahmoo Arts. Call the office at 604-536-8333 or use the button to register.

Girl with a Pearl – Studying from the Masters

Ruskin said something like “You haven’t really seen a thing until you have drawn it”.  Very true. I sometimes do sketches from the masters. Here is my sketch from Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earing.  No originality here on my part, but doing an accurate sketch of this sort of subject brings one to learn and understand much more deeply than merely viewing the image. You notice a lot more, such as the overall structure, the skew in the lips, the eye covered partly by the nose, the graphic of the eyes, the modeling of the eye socket bone,  the subtlety of the eyebrows, the open spaces between the marks. I don’t mind saying it took quite a while to get it this far – but worth it as a learning exercise.

Drawing The Face Semiahmoo Arts (for Ozzie & Ellen) Vid 1 of 6 {Dec 11 2017}

This is a 6 video demo series on Drawing the Face. It is about 2.5 hours long overall. It is a good intro, once over lightly. Best to start with video 2 of 6. Video 1 is just an overview that needs some editing and there is a problem with the link , anyway.
