Fiendish Foreshortening (Female Nude)

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop and here’s a drawing in progress. The pose was about 45 minutes. I used my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 using the free Markers app,saving regularly to keep a record of the development of the drawing.

I like to go to life drawing regularly as the study of human anatomy underpins my artistic practice. The portrayal of the nude is a European artistic tradition going back tens of thousands of years, to Paleolithic times.

I’m a glutton for punishment and I choose difficult foreshortening to get some practice. This one was a pain!
