Below are some of David's fabulous poses for the WAA life drawing workshops, drawn by Rosemary.
been part of our Whitehorse Arts Association Thursday afternoon
life drawing family for ever.
He brings with him into our midst love, light and laughter. Working on either side of the drawing board as our model, or as a fellow artist David's pursuit of art is dedicated and serious.
As our model, David's unique signature poses are often (not always) an intricate tangle of bony arms and legs almost impossible for us to decipher. (David confesses he often includes extra arms and legs to confuse us!) With his most wonderful "Old Testament prophet's face", bony body and expressive hands and feet, these poses are the utmost challenge to our abilities and are always a joy and delight and inspiration to us. The one problem with these poses is David is not free to do a drawing of himself!
As a fellow artist David draws with dedication and love. The notable qualities of his drawings are their sense of gesture and movement, and particularly the varied and sensitive line quality they display. His drawings contain mark making at its very best.
As a friend David, with his generosity of spirit, simply by being David enhances our Thursday afternoons, and transforms them into an extraordinary shared art experience.
There are no words that are high enough praise to honour our beloved David and express what he means to us. We know he has inspired dozens of other artists all around Melbourne for years and years, but we still believe he is ours.
Thank you David.
