Tag Archives: figure drawing heavy over weight bodies

Figure Drawing, July 1, 2019

The same model tonight as the one we had a few weeks ago: the one with the props. Fun! So she pulled out her black wings, black stockings and black hat with black veil. She is a heavy weight figure. There is something deeply satisfying about feeling the weight of such bodies; drawing rotating circles for the major bodily forms (harder to do with skinny, active models), allowing them to slowly emerge from the paper. Eight drawings below.

Four fifteen minutes 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.
