A New Male Nude [parental guidance]

15 Jun

Got home late from life drawing last night, too tired to blog and today I’ve been framing and mounting prints all day for next week’s printmaking exhibition at Oriel Canfas in Cardiff. Then this evening Husb and I went to the opening of this year’s MA show at Ty Bryn Glas – excellent. I think it’s the best MA show I’ve seen, consistently high standards and lots of well-crafted, considered and beautiful work. Definitely worth seeing.

Anyway, here’s our soldier model who posed last night. This was a difficult one to draw. I deliberately went for an angle that gave me some foreshortening; his left foot was quite close but he was leaning sharply away so his head was noticeably smaller. His hands took a lot of effort.  It’s got potential; I might rework this as I like the pose a lot. It’s drawn with chalky pastels and compressed charcoal into my A3 Bockingford sketchbook, using both pages.
