Tonight we had Soeren (sp?). He is a tall lanky fellow, really good at taking interesting poses. The difficulty in drawing him is that he is so long and lean that I usually run out of paper before I have packed all of his body onto the page. But that wasn’t really the case tonight, especially for the four minute gesture poses, because he tended to fold up into himself in various ways. These too, presented their own kind of challenge, as it was difficult to discover what body parts were doing what. Anyway, here is selection of drawings from the evening.
Two fifteen minute poses. Conté pencil and crayon on Canson pastel paper. 32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19.75 in.
Three four minute poses. Black charcoal on tinted sketching paper. 35 x 50 cm or 13.75 x 19.75 in.
