The picture: Fine black line pen on white paper. Two minutes. Drawn as one continuous lin as much as I could.

What do you think? Drawing usinge one continuous line mkesyou observe the main shapes and not the details.  You'll notice that the arms are much shorter than the legs.  The legs were closer to my eyes but not that much/  I see her stretching first thing in the moring as she tries to throw off sleep.

Nude of the day 50: Planning an adventure


Please comment: I put these pictures up to see what people think so please comment. A raffle at the end gives everyone who comments the chance of a free print. Read below to learn how to make a comment.
The picture: Charcoal, female nude reclining on a quilt, studying a map and planing an adventure.  Heavy dark shading at the back to bring her forward.  One legcovered with the quilt.

What do you think?  The whole body leans to the right and the left arm directs you to the open map. I find charcoal very useful to making an intense black.

The picture:Pastel on black pastel card.  The model lies on a deep blue quilt and a deep red cushion supports her head.

What do you think? I found it difficult painting flesh colours on a black pastel board and it was quite challenging, but I like challenges.  It's all part of the art adventure.

The picture: Brown pastel on white paper.  Torso of a female nude standing with a stillness about the pose.

What do you think? I'm very proud of this drawing.  I like the torso masses and the folded hands.  I think it works very well.  How about you?

Nude of the day 46: Listening to bird song

Please comment: I put these pictures up to see what people think so please comment. A raffle at the end gives everyone who comments the chance of a free print. Read below to learn how to make a comment.


The picture: Water based wash of blue green crayon with red added.  Female nude reclining, front view.  Right arm takes the weight of her body. Left arm rests across her torso. This one is similar to the drawing on January 25.  I show them both together below.
They are different poses.  In the left picture, the upper weight is on the left arm at the back and both legs are visible.  On the right picture, the model's upper weight is on her right arm and only one thigh is visible. My drawings, coincidentally have become a pair.

When I prepare myself for a drawing/painting session, I collect crayons, pastels, acrylics, pencil, charcoal and various brushes, water, paint rag, sponges and different qualities of paper and card etc and maybe my ipad for painting.  In order to work, I spend a few seconds deciding which medium suits my thinking about this pose, then picking up crayon, white paper with water and a soft brush at the ready eg for blending.

What do you think? I think these look nice as a pair.  What do you think?
