Indulging Myself

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. I really like this model because he’s as thin as Egon Schiele’s models and I came all over German Expressionist. We had one of the spotlights on so I was able to indulge myself with some chiaroscuro. I also love extreme foreshortening like this. Great evening 🙂

I drew onto an A3 size canvas sheet that I’d prepared with an acrylic yellow ochre wash. I’d used it previously for drawing but I didn’t like it so I drew this on top. I worked with black and white conte crayons, white oil pastel and a stick of carbon.

    Blimey, you are good. I love Schiele’s drawings. Yours captures that style well but is original to you.

    Your technique seems to improve every time you put something up!

    Fantastic! Coming over all German Expressionist can only be a good thing… especially where Schiele’s concerned. 🙂

    Fabulous! Absolutely fabulous! Not always sure about your ‘preparation’ but the yellow ochre really makes this. Yes, fabulous indeed!!

      Aw thanks 🙂 I hate the tyrrany of white. Once there’s something on it I can let go.
