For the seated pose, all his muscles seemed to bunch up and become much more prominent. This was my attempt at the 40 minute pose on a thin, pale ocher colored paper.
The standing pose had me seated and slightly looking upward at him. This was only 20 minutes and drawn in ebony pencil on the pale gray rag paper. Next week is the last class in this session and I will definitely miss it - these past 5 weeks have flown by!
Thanks for looking and, as always, I very much enjoy reading your thoughts and comments.
Susan, all your last postings are great, as always. Your drawings on different paper are very inspiring.ReplyDelete

Well these are fabulous - right down to the feet, which I always find so tricky! :0)ReplyDelete

I love these drawings, Susan, especially the one in repose. Absolutely wonderful!ReplyDelete
That one is my favorite, too - I think I am just about warmed up for the last poses of the session which are always prone as the models are tired by then!Delete
