Fierce Foreshortening ( Female Nude )

20 Jun


I did this digital sketch at last night’s life drawing session. I like the challenge of foreshortening and a reclining pose is right up my street. The shape of the body is very strange but I measured accurately and that’s the shape thrown by the foreshortening.

I used the free Markers app on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 and the pose was about 45 minutes. It was very difficult as the head, face, hands and a foot are all there in a foreshortened relationship with each other.

      Thank you. I meet weekly with a group of artists at Swansea Print Workshop and we hire a model.

    Beautiful Rosie! I so miss life drawing class. Took it nearly twenty years ago while I studied fashion. So much fun when you gave a fabulous teacher as I did 🙂
