Pregnant Nude – parental guidance

14 Jan

14 pregnant

I was lucky enough to be able to draw a pregnant model a few months ago. It’s a rare chance and I’ve only worked with one pregnant model before, some years ago. However, I’ve had huge problems getting these works seen. Nudes are contentious anyway but there seems to be particular discomfort about naked pregnant women. I don’t know why. I think she is beautiful and joyful. I’ll probably use some of these drawings as the basis for full colour monotypes. Here’s a 15 minute sketch in dip pen and ink, brush and wash and conte crayon in white for the highlights onto a tinted sugar paper.
