Figure Drawing September 16, 2019

We had a new model tonight – which is to say this was her first time modeling for a figure drawing session. She did very well: took interesting poses and held them; plus she had a muscular body that was interesting to draw. For some reason I had more success with the longer poses tonight.I like the spotlighted one because she arched her back for that and I was able to capture some aspect of the arch. Plus I had enough time to add a few white highlights – which always makes the drawing pop.

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

And one four minute gesture drawing. Black charcoal on tinted sketching paper. 35 x 50 cm or 13.75 x 19.75 in.

After a long hiatus, I was delighted to finally return to Bruno’s studio to do some figure drawing. The model, Arne, was a good one, choosing interesting, creative poses. Below are three 15 minute poses and 4 four minute poses. I was happy with the four minute poses, especially those that happened with a firm and decisive stroke.

Fifteen minute poses. Conté pencil and conté crayon on Canson pastel paper. 32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19.75 in.
