Life Montype by Ian Hopton

Life drawings are done with a spontaneous 'gestural' technique, drawn directly from the model in traditional sepia pen and wash.
This technique was developed during several years study with the visionary painter Cecil Collins, whose unique teaching methods are described in the book Archetypal Postures in the Process of Creativity
All drawings are initialed and mounted on card.
