Foetal!

Here’s another one from last night’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I love drawing models in a foetal position. There’s a terrific tension and movement in the pose as well as some great foreshortening. I precoloured a canvas sheet, size A3, with Rodamine Red oil pigment, squeegeed on with a cheap window-cleaning squeegee and left to dry. I did the initial drawing with a white conte crayon, drawn over with black conte and then rubbed some cerulean blue oilbar onto it. It’s a long way from finished but it was only a 30 minute pose and the basics are there for me to build upon.

    Isn’t this wonderful? Love the composition-color. The foreshortening is brilliant.
