My Drawing with a Live Model class will not meet on July 1st. We’ll be celebrating the 4th of July! I know it’s only the 1st, but that’s what we’ll be doing so plan on joining me on August 5th and we will be studying the proportions of the entire body with model Jacki Moseley.
About Audrey Botrell
My work has been predominantly realistic portraits of people and animals in graphite, charcoal, pastel or acrylic. Iʼve always been intrigued with bringing a piece of paper or canvas to life with a portrait. There is something so captivating drawing life! It gives me such a rush that I hurry back to do it all over again!”
After spending time in the bluffs overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks, I have been inspired by bright, bold colors often dancing in the evening sunsets. I feel the energy and life of the color. A new kind of portrait has begun. Not one that is necessarily representational, but abstract.
Creating is a calming therapy in a chaotic world. I love to create for the sheer joy it brings. It is also the reason I love to teach, so my students can experience this joy too! I firmly believe the EVERYONE CAN LEARN TO DRAW REALISTICALLY!
