Figure Drawing, June 17, 2019

Our model tonight was an old favorite, Melissa: the lady who disrobes but retains her glasses. She has an interesting hourglass shape, thin above, thick below. I tried a few drawings on gray paper with sepia chalk but they weren’t taking off. Then, when I switched to sepia paper with burnt umber chalk, they did. Sometimes you just have to switch it up. The featured image here above works, I think, because there is both form and light: there are highlights (and super high lights), mid-tones and shadows.

Below three fifteen minute poses. Conté pencil and crayon on Canson pastel paper. 32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19.75 in.

Two four minute studies. Black charcoal on tinted sketching paper. 35 x 50 cm or 13.75 x 19.75 in.
