We were asked what we wanted the work to be about before we started drawing.
Answers ranged from ‘volume’, ‘real’; I said ‘grace’.
This is delicate. Each surface has it’s own marks and colour scheme.
This was made with acrylics and pencils. The background was painted in at home.
The mirror make the picture. A two dimensional image of a life model, who has a two dimension reflection behind them.
The hands and torso were the main focus.
Three earlier studies of 5 minutes each. Trying to capture the pose in a few marks and a sense of potential movement.
What a gorgeous treatment of this figure! Glad you provided the background too–so much added to the richness.
I am really amazed how much work you put on colors. The drawing is gorgeous, but the colors absolutely stun me. It’s really beautiful.
