Nice. I especially like the man. What's the media?
These are Tombo markers (water soluble) plus water and brush on paper.
the both are very good Jean . the way you made the man is very strong and dinamic .
The sitting woman is my favorite: nice pose, her hand is drawn very good... How big or small is this picture?
Thanks, Caio and Annie. Annie, this drawing is pretty big; maybe about 12"x18."
I would like these models for their structure and strong planes.The female reminds me somewhat of Lila, one of our favorites here in L.A. She is a combination of bony(her face and neck)with a round and dimpled butt and big white hair. I think PA mentioned her. Nice to work with.
Shanna, I mentioned Lila, but I think I was describing a different model. The model I was thinking of was very thin, had white hair and a strong nose, and always wore large button-type earrings when posing. Could this be the same woman?
The model I spoke of would be over a 100 if she were alive today (and her health seemed questionable then) so I'm guessing...The facial features rendered on the left hand drawing are exquisite. Color choices too. You are good.how did the New York situation come about?
I too very much like the one on the left. Was there a time limit on these drawings?
Thanks, PA. My husband taught for the year in NYC and I went with him. I loved it; Spring Studio has superb models and is open every day.
AH, I'm trying to remember. I'm certain the very relaxed and supported pose on the right was a three-hour pose, though I didn't spend the entire period doing the drawing. The pose on the left may also have been a three-hour pose, but it looks like a difficult one for that length of time, so I'm guessing it was a single 20 minute pose. (Three hours means 20 minutes posing, 5 or 10 minutes resting, for about 3 hours, total.)One thing I've been missing with the current short-pose sessions I've been attending is getting the chance to do the more considered color work.
It's the drying time between marks with the colored markers/wet brush technique that makes it hard to pull off with anything less than two 20-minute poses.
