The 60 Minute Pose

23 Nov

60 mins 5

Here’s a 60 minute pose from life drawing session a few nights ago at Swansea Print Workshop. It has some difficult foreshortening and I ended up with two hands, two feet and a head which is a lot of drawing.  It’s distorted but I like that. I admire the work of Egon Schiele, who also distorted some of his nudes, so if it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for me.

 

 

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.

    I love the distortion and the drawing overall. A 60 minute pose sounds extremely challenging for someone like me who draws in a gestural style. I suspect that I would be in grave danger of overworking.

      Yes, that’s always a problem. I try to be a bit more academic with the longer poses, but sometimes I get carried away with it 😀
