The Life Model (Female Nude)

29 Apr

Life model April 2016

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop and we had an older female model this evening. I really enjoy drawing older people, bodies and faces are so interesting, lived in, expressive. It was pretty full tonight, with a wide age range of scribblers, from early 20s to 70s, great to be able to do something intergenerational. I used conté crayon on these two drawings in white, sanguine and black into a large (A2) brown paper sketchbook. The first was about 15 minutes and the portrait about 40 minutes.

I will be running courses in printmaking techniques at Swansea Print Workshop in coming months, please click here if you want to find out more. If you want to see some of my other artworks, please click here. Thank you 😀
