Man On Floor

8 Aug

08 floor

Does what it says on the tin. A man. On the floor. Just got back from life drawing group this evening, at Swansea Print Workshop, and had a terrific pose to draw, with difficult angles, perspective and foreshortening. Lovely. I’m a bit of a masochistic scribbler. The workshop has strong spotlights that give good chiaroscuro effects. I used a dip pen, Indian ink, a variety of sable brushes with ink wash into an A3 cartridge pad.

    I love this! I don’t know how intentional the positioning of the subject is on the page, being that it was a life drawing class, but his pose and the positioning just suggest so much to me of restrictions and almost tortuous things going on inside the man. It’s just such an expressive drawing!

      Thank you. I wanted to position him there to emphasise the ‘trapped’ feeling

    Fabulous drawing – like you I enjoy the challenge of foreshortening and difficult poses 🙂
