Figure Drawing, September 3, 2018

The model tonight was fantastic. The second time I remember drawing him. He’s really good because he seems to know intuitively what to do. However, even though the model can be fantastic and I resonate with him/her, I can still have a mediocre evening. Tonight was that way, principally, I think due to my own state, as I was not feeling very well. Even in such cases, it’s always good to go out and try, and see what happens.

Two fifteen minute poses. Conté crayon on Canson tinted pastel paper. 32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19.75 in.

Four four minute sketches. Charcoal on tinted sketching paper. 35 x 50 cm or 13.75 x 19.75 in.

Tonight we had Ina, originally from South America, so Spanish speaking. She is together with a Belgian man with whom they have two children. But the curious thing about her is that she, husband and two children took off from here about two years ago to live on a sailboat and sail around the world. Well, she’s back now. The sailing adventure did not go exactly as planned. 😉  But they are still free spiriting it around Europe living in a camper van and sailing a few months out of the year. So much for the story, here are a few drawings from the evening.

Four fifteen minute studies. Conté crayon and pencil on tinted pastel paper. 32.7 x 50 cm or 13 x 19.75 in.

Two four minute gesture drawings. Charcoal on brown tinted sketching paper. 35 x 50 cm. or 13.75 x 19.75.

Two fifteen minute poses ended up being keepers from this evening. I like how there is a different chromatic feel reflected in the choice of different papers and the subsequent development of the image.

Conté pencil highlighted with conté crayon on pastel paper. 32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19 3/4 in.

And a four minute one as well. 30.5 x 40.6 cm. or 12 x 16 in

One of the more frequent models, Soeren. A very tall, lanky fellow with big hands and feet. It is often difficult to get all of his splayed out body on one piece of paper.  I like the highlighted one because of the accent of a warm conté crayon for the face and feet.

Three fifteen minute poses, one above and two below. Conté pencil highlighted with conté crayon on tinted pastel paper.  32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19 3/4 in.
