‘Damian 1’ by Barbara Daly



Ink, charcoal, pencil and pastel on paper, 35 x 46 cm. Work produced at Online Life Drawing with Damian.

My artwork of the model Damian was created during one of London Drawing’s excellent online life drawing classes. These classes have been an essential and enjoyable part of developing my drawing skills during the Covid pandemic when in person classes have not been allowed to run. Damian was one of the many interesting models that I have been able to study and draw. Damian created a complex aesthetic of, on the one hand, physical strength and, on the other, vulnerability that I tried to capture in my work.
