Figure Drawing, August 28, 2017

One of my favorite models, Soeren. A very tall, very skinny chap, with large hands and feet. Sweet temperament and with a good feeling for what makes for an interesting pose. Actually, he works at out local supermarket so we see each other regularly with his clothes on. Nice.

Three drawings of 15 minute poses done on tinted pastel paper with conté pencil highlighted with conté crayon on toned pastel paper. 32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19 3/4 in.

The drawings below are some 4 minute poses from the same evening. They happen to be conté  pencil on pastel paper (because I ran out of my usual cheap sketching paper). I’m always happy if a drawing can convey something energetic about the figure. Four minutes (or less) are good for that – but not much more: tonality gets tossed to the wind. 32.7 x 50 cm or 13 x 19 3/4 in.
