Life Drawing 1 & 2: The lady with the flower & the night without a model.

The magician 1st state

Anne and the drawing
There was a problem with the model, so this week we drew each other.
I’d always wanted to draw Anne so this seems like a good time to make this happen. I’m going to paint the resulting work and call it ‘The Magician”.

David Mr Skellington and Marks handIn this painting I was the main model. The paper was at an angle hence the sweeping perspective moving right to left. It was fascinating to see how people moved while working.

Marks drawing of me
This is a great drawing made by Mark of me drawing the image above. You can tell he’s an architect by the great angular use of line and composition.

Mr Skellington in orange verdegris, green grey and black pencil. The gap was left for the model that never came. Mr Skellington seemed a bit resigned this week.

The works below are from the week before 15.01.16.

I’d been bought a tin of pencils ranging from 4H to 7B.Lady with flower
A fellow artist commented that the work was looking like mock classical Picasso. He meant solid, mannerist and without large amounts of shading. Sounded good to me.

This was drawn on the floor, hence the perspective.
