Since starting a Life Drawing class on a Monday evening at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery in Leicester I have got acquainted with the artist Euen Uglow and in particular his figurative work.
Uglow had a very meticulous way of working that relied heavily on getting the measuring of the model just right before he would progress to finished work. Some of his work would take months and in some cases years. What he got in terms of finished pieces was very precise and realistic drawings and paintings.
His way of working really brings home the discipline of strict measuring of the model at the beginning and how this approach is often rewarded with good life drawing results - something I hope to emulate during this current class.
Some of Uglow's work is shown below :
