Art has been an inseparable part of my soul, I began painting at the age of 5. I love creating artworks based on naked figure studies and portraits, I am drawn towards the natural naked true self we all have within us. I’ve experimented with a variety of mediums, my favorite being charcoal and watercolor for the ease of carrying it anywhere and making quick figure studies. My favorite artists are Daniel Maidman, Michael Mentler, Richard Ehiemua and Casey Baugh.”

A fairytale on paper


THE ARTIST SAYS:

profile.jpg“I am proudly self taught and started drawing at an early age. Encouraging parents fueled my need for expression. Once in high school I excelled in art and dreamed of continued studies in college. After graduating I married and went to work helping raise my three children. Working for a marketing firm I drew a concept design that achieved national recognition. After that I continued to draw and paint until the eighties when I joined and art league and entered a national juried show which my work was accepted. Encouraged by my family and friends I decided to enter shows and fairs winning many entries and turning professional in the eighties I sold many of my creations. Most of my ideas for my art come from dreams.
Pen, pencil and acrylic are my preferred mediums but I’ve tried them all. I love the creative process and am continually creating fantasy landscapes and seascapes or space concepts in my home studio. Currently retired I’m still working on my art daily”.

I studied Art and Design in my A levels, but worked mostly on my own. I have sold a few pieces and have a few available as well, both on my instagram and facebook, but since I’m particularly fascinated by hyper and photo realism, the rate at which I produce my work can be low”.

My three young children are my world, and my paintings are inspired by lots of light and colorful scenes. After surviving a dark childhood, I now spend time creating to relieve stress and focus on positivity. I’m drawn to realism, surrealism, and fantasy art styles which allow bold, bright creations that my children and I can enjoy together. My art is now in homes from Alaska to England, and I’m grateful for offers in local galleries for shows next year. Thank you for the opportunity to share my art on CHROMA”.

THE BRIGHT SIDE

THE BRIGHT SIDE

The Skull – Side

It is very cool being able to draw the front part of the skull; we used to do that since we were in school. If you want to understand though the volume of the skull, the structure of the bones and mainly how all these affect the proportions and arrangement of the facial features, then you really need to be looking at the side of the skull too. It is important to know what the proportions are and this is exactly what we are going to study today. As always, this drawing might not be 100% accurate, but it will definitely be a good starting point for you to understand and expand your knowledge in the long run.

JANE – 2

25/06/2018

Last week unfortunately I had to skip my life drawing class and today it felt really awkward the first ten minutes; I thought I had forgotten to hold the charcoal stick! I was trying to refresh my memory as to how we draw the ribcage, what I had learnt about the skull and mainly how do we put all this together. Th bright side is that after a few wrong lines I slowly got up to speed again.

Our model today was Jane. Jane was the first model I ever sketched and this truly a good opportunity for me (and yourself if you wish!) to look back and see the progress I have made the past few months (see JANE).

As usually the model did three short poses. Finally, the class picked their favourite one as the long pose; we picked pose number three. Lets go through them one by one.

For the first pose Jane was sat on a table with her legs crossed. This pose gave me a good sight of her torso and breast. I tried to quickly sketch and remind myself the structure of the head and the Ribcage (and mainly how these affect the skin of the body). I am quite happy with this pose as we didn’t spend more than 7 minutes.

36042829_1244913082309118_6335916668224536576_n.jpg

For the second pose Jane stayed on the table however she turned her back towards my side. I spent less than five minutes sketching this pose as in the meanwhile I had a quick chat with my tutor. She pointed out that my lines should be less heavy and bold! I spent most of my time sketching the model’s left foot. Feet are always a challenge! Apparently, the model appears to wide here but as mentioned before, I am not too worried as this served mainly as a warm up for the longer pose.36176870_1244913152309111_163261482266525696_n.jpg

For the third pose Jane returned pretty much to her original position; main difference being that instead of crossing her legs she now had a stool to support her right leg, while the left one was touching the floor. I couldn’t see her right arm almost at all. As before, I had a good view of her torso and legs. In my first attempt (short pose) I didn’t make any effort to sketch the legs. I only focused on the upper structure. As you can see below (drawing on the left hand side) the sketch is quite technical – I tried to put together previous knowledge before starting the long pose.36283152_1244913288975764_902433458511413248_n.jpg

Finally, after a quick tea break (actually it was fizzy drinks and cheese snacks break…) we went back in class to start with our long pose. The class decided pose number 3 was the preferable one (and I totally agreed). This time I did spend time drawing the whole body, including legs and upper structure as well. I was lightly criticized by my tutor for being too technical and strict with my drawing but at this stage I would like to learn the structure and then allow myself to go crazy with colour and lines. I had the time to add some tone too to satisfy myself with a complete drawing.

You gain an understanding of how things work together and then instead of just sketching individual shapes and planes you understand how the body structure works as a whole!

JOANNA – 2

11/05/2018

This was the second Monday Joanna modeled for us. The session was quite interesting in terms of new knowledge. Once more, our tutor spent more time with myself and another guy who is a beginner; she taught us the proportions and structure of the skull. Recently we studied the ribcage (read: Human Anatomy 1 – The Ribcage) and now we were ready to build up on the structure above.

35430749_1235067379960355_4680724405075050496_n

We started sketching the top of the cranium trying to replicate the curvature. The tutor pointed out that the curve gets steeper at the rear side. Once the top was done we then carried on to sketch the rear side and the front side. We had to check the angle of the outline of the skull and finally close the shape at the bottom and middle of the cranium. It’s worth mentioning that this point is the “hole” for the ear!

35425775_1235067613293665_7197869003409195008_n.jpg

Once the cranium was in place we had to roughly sketch the front part of the skull; the area where all the facial features appear. For the sake of speed and understanding we sketched that as a simple tube. Also, extra care was needed for the eye sockets and nose but we will look at this more carefully in following sessions. I am aiming to study the skull myself in detail one of the following weeks.

35521611_1235067203293706_2246405334761472_n.jpg

When we had a good grasp of the outline and volumes of the skull we moved on to sketch from life. So Joanna, being our model, offered some interesting angles and poses for us to sketch her head.

35518022_1235067063293720_6514896206081032192_n.jpg

We were asked to sketch her head as a simple orthogonal box. Just that. Give the orientation and the planes we could see. Then we had to elaborate and fit the cranium and face volumes within that box. We had to remember that the volume of the neck happens behind the “tube” of the face and under the volume of the cranium.

THE ARTIST SAYS:

34826150_185746302130651_4239787175383662592_n.jpg“Gemma Hare is a fine artist residing in Aberdeen.

After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2005 with a BA (hons) in Drawing and Painting, Gemma became a primary teacher, which has led her to work with children in different school settings as well as facilitating art workshops.

Her work is inspired by everyday objects and experiences, such as plants, people, places and text. She enjoys experimenting with different media and processes.

Gemma also incorporates printmaking and stencilling techniques to build multi – layered pieces.

Gemma’s current series has a new focus. Her work looks at bee preservation, through the use of her layering and colour composition, with a painted bee as a focal point. These pieces also incorporate some text, relating to the issue of bee decline and its consequences.

Gemma has been creating work again since November 2018 and is beginning to experiment with creating print editions, as well as one off originals. She has taken part in recent exhibitions in Aberdeenshire and Edinburgh so far. Gemma is happy to accept commissions and discuss her work with others.
