Online life-drawing workshop reviews
That was a great session this morning I really enjoyed it. Very well put together and easy to join in. The model was brilliant  -  TS
Thank you very much for setting up this morning's drawing session. I enjoyed it hugely and forgot all about C for a whole hour or so. I'm looking forward to signing up for future sessions... in anticipation, i've already bought kitkats!  -  CP
Thanks so much for another super session. I look forward to more   -  JS
Thank you very much for the session today - I think this format will be really good for me - I’m hoping that at least without the self-consciousness of having my drawing observed I may be able to relax more
Thanks again, brilliant idea.  -  JL
I thought the session on Friday was good and thank you for organising.  Looks like video conferencing is going to be the way forward for the next few weeks/months.  I also liked the way we could see and hear fellow participants though I did miss the kitkats.  -  JG
Thanks for setting up last night. I was surprised how easy it was to connect . Zoom seemed to work well as I haven’t used it before - Drawing from the screen was clear, and quite a different technique for observation. The poses were really good . It takes a bit of getting used to but it was fun.  -  CM
Really enjoyed the life drawing Robin - thank you for organising it. I think it worked very well. I’ll look forward to Monday  -  CY
Robin thanks for today. Really enjoyed. Can we put our drawings on social media?  -  TG
Just to say thank you once again, this was such a fun and engaging experience - it's like all the stress and anxiety melts away as you focus on nothing but drawing.
Thanks also for your tips, for a beginner like me they are really helpful.
Please please do more of these virtual sessions, and do remember us folks who work office hours, as an evening session like this is just brilliant - especially if you are stuck indoors.  -  SC

Team building evening

'From basic form to finer detail, we spent two hours finding our feet and – believe it or not – forgetting about the totally naked girl in front of us. We tried 10-second sketches, overlaying drafts and swapping half way through until one-by-one, like a Hollywood plot resolution, it happened. Imagine a pat on the back from Da Vinci himself – that’s what it felt like to fill with that warm glow of pride. Or it might have been the wine but whatever, we’re artists now.'

Monthly challenge

Our 'Women With Attitude' group had a brilliant life drawing session with Robin. Several of us had never attempted any kind of drawing before, but everyone enjoyed the evening and went home with something they were proud of.

Thank you for your workshops, I really enjoyed them. Unfortunately I have moved away so I now cannot attend.

I hope you continue your wonderful work, your workshops were a lovely calm space that I truly appreciated.

Thanks again,

Internationally exhibited, from Paris to Bankside, the work of Robin Rutherford revolves around the idea of motion, his works on canvas at once both a captured sensation, as well as in constant flux. By isolating and spotlighting the kinetic in his subject matter, a sense of progression occurs in his compositions, further informing the viewer of the spatial potential of the canvas.


With subject matter ranging from cloudscapes to otherscapes, colour palettes switch from contrasting triads to overlapping hues, a deep sense of movement puncturing the canvas as figures and forms skitter and sway.
