Last month I joined the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Group which hold regular monthly drawing events which presented a great way to meet other artists and to enhance skills.
The group is run by the Courier Mail cartoonist Sean Leahy who is a great inspiration to watch as he draws. It was really encouraging to see him eagerly flicking through my sketchbook giving praise.
Two events I have been to so far are the life drawing evenings. A bit different to the traditional life drawing, as these feature local singers who sing a for an hour and a half as we draw them. I kind of like the creative cycle it forms from musical creativity fuelling our drawing creativity which in turn fuels their singing.
