Figure Drawing, May 22, 2017

I find there is something disconcerting about a nude model, who decides to retain their glasses. When drawing, include them or not? If so, the hard lines and hard reflections from the glasses create an element where previously there were only organically flowing shapes. But still, I think the most successful drawing of the evening was the featured one here where the bright white of the glasses’ reflection forms the strongest highlight.

Conté pencil highlighted with conté crayon on toned pastel paper. 32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19 3/4 in.
