Life Drawing – Female Nude

22 Jul

Here’s another drawing I did during this week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. Our model sat for a one-hour pose and I decided to do several drawings instead of one. This was my warm-up drawing, about 10 minutes.

I started with a piece of willow charcoal to put in an outline then blocked in some highlights with chalk. I finished with carbon to give me a strong black line, working into my A2 brown paper sketchbook.


I have been travelling across South Wales with Rhondda-born archaeologist Dewi Bowen and Swansea film maker Melvyn Williams, hunting the wild megalith, accompanied by my portable drawing board, portfolio of Fabriano paper and a bag full of assorted artist’s materials.  Dewi is researching his latest book on Neolithic monuments and Melvyn is making a documentary film of our literary and artistic adventures.
