An Older Woman

21 Sep


Here’s another of the digital drawings I did during life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop a couple of evenings ago. I like working with this older woman model. Her face and body have lived life and are so very interesting to study. I prefer to work with older models and male models, to break away from the traditional young, comely female nude in a passive pose. They’re the ones that tend to get into exhibitions and to sell but I don’t really want to go down that route. The art museums of the world are full of nudes like that, usually painted by male artists and I am trying to find a different way of portraying the human body; to get away from soft core erotica.

I used my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with a free Markers app, creating a dark ground to work over and using my finger for much of the line work.
