Really Difficult (Female Nude)

2 Apr

April 02


Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. I spent an hour drawing this pose in compressed charcoal, chalk and conte crayon, black and white, onto a piece of Saunders vintage paper. It had some severe foreshortening, with both hands and the left foot going in different directions. It’s the most difficult pose I have ever drawn. I sweated! But it’s very good practice and pushed me right out of my comfort zone. And now, relax 🙂

      Thank you so much. Practice and drawing every day. It’s very unfashionable to draw these days but there’s no substitute in my opinion 😊

      Didn’t realise when I sat down. Then I started drawing and thought oh poo! I should have sat somewhere else 😁

    I can see how that pose made for a difficult drawing–foreshortening is so tricky.

      Oh it was. I was shattered at the end of it. Must persevere though.
