Did you join in from the ‘comfort’ of your lockdown the largest ever live, life drawing class on BBC 4 on 12 May 2020? You may have spotted Diana’s vibrant drawing of the reclining nude figure as it was one of the uploaded works during the programme. See it pictured here and consider acquiring it as part of the global #artistssupportpledge initiative. Did you recognise Diana’s energetic watercolour palette and her colour-saturated style? Perhaps, the fast transition of the poses has proven to be too much of a challenge for you, too? Perhaps, you, too prefer to dwell a bit longer on the nuances of the human form?
Missed the live Pose Cam offering uninterrupted views of the models while poses took place? Find some of the feedback, tips and insight from the presenters including the Scottish artist Laclan Goudie still on the BBC iPlayer. Even better, explore the programme website and find a pre-curated selection of hundreds of poses to choose from courtesy of Art UK – the online space which lets you browse every publicly owned artwork in the UK.
Practice your life drawing in lockdown, drawing inspiration from the nation’s galleries and art collections and do stay tuned for more curatorial stories from Diana’s studio under quarantine. Yours, Iliyana Nedkova
