The model tonight was a heavy set lady with lots of props. She came with a WWI gas mask (!), a black hat sporting a thin black veil, a pair of black wings, a pair of black, thigh length hose and some black, elbow length gloves. OK, we think, this will be fun. Thus whatever the poses may lacked for in terms of bodily inventiveness was made up for with her use of props. An interesting evening containing lots of laughter.
Here below two fifteen minute poses.Conté pencil and crayon on Canson pastel paper. 32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19.75 in.
Four four minute poses. Black charcoal on tinted sketching paper. 35 x 50 cm or 13.75 x 19.75 in.
I really enjoy your work, particularly the figure drawings. If you are interested and have a chance, please take a look at my blog. I do work that is in some ways similar to yours. Thank you for sharing your work. Jeff Gold
I did take a look at your site. Yes, there is similarity, I think particularly due to our mutual love of drawing the human figure. I particularly liked your pastel figure drawings, as you seemed to be able to make firmer decisions using that medium (me, too). The ball point pen (because it is so neutral value-wise) tends to display your searching.
Love the Aboriginal stuff!
Good luck and keep working!
