Life class 9: 14.03.14 Drawing when unwell

Lady pencil figure study

This was the warm-up pose. Two different types of pencil. Just trying to get the basics right and get some of the weight and shadow. 20 minute pose.

Seated blue lady

The main pose of the night. Painted sitting down. The breakthrough came when I noticed one of my fellow artists was wearing a deep blue dress in the back of the composition. The black blocks are the night time windows. A nice solid chair. 45 minutes.

Ble lady with frame  Seated blue lady otto mueller

These two sketches remind me of an artist I liked a lot when a 13 year old. Otto Mueller, a German Expressionist who specialised in ochre coloured nudes in the grass. 15 minutes each.

Here’s Otto, he looks familiar…

This composition just felt overwhelming; we were to draw the model and everything around her. 10 minute pose.
