There's the nude.  Now watch the movie.

Happy Christmas to you all.  Hope you enjoy the movie.

Don't forget to look at the sister blog Poem a Week by my husband Nick for a nice comic poem that will appeal to the childish among you see

And don't forget my husbands ebooks at an excellent Christmas present for anyone interested in the story of the first World War.  

Love from Jeanie

Nude of the week 32: A contė and a pastel of the same model

Drawing in black contė crayon on rough paper giving texture to the darker areas.  The crayon is used on its side for tone and on it's sharp corner for linear detail like the hair.  I like the way the tousled darkl brown hair hangs in disarray about the face.  This pose beautifully fits in the proportions of the paper.

Although this is papstel there is very little colour letting the grey of the paper work for the shadows in the flesh and the drapery.  Warm colour is added very lightly to the model and the main colour is in the hair. The model lies looking up with her hair falling back
