She's very human, isn't she--both the positions and the body. I'd listen to her story.
These feel almost like landscapes to me - there's a sense of permanence in the pose, must be the resting positions. I love the line work as always - you just get better and better!
These are really nice Jean. You've had a bit of anatomy in your past. Great use of the bloody stuff and great treatment of volume.
Thanks, all.Bango, I also love the natural and relaxed feeling of this model's poses. Not easy to do in long poses. And each of these was held for one hour, with breaks to move about. (These are from group sessions; these drawings did not take that long.)Katherine, I think of these as landscapes, too.Linda, I haven't had the kind of anatomy you mean. My eyes always kind of glaze over when I try to page through artist's anatomy books on my own. But I did study human anatomy many years ago and can still dredge up Latin names for some structures.
it is so nice to have you back and see your works they are always so googd
How come artists appreciate curves in a woman's body, but fashion photographers do not?
Thanks, Laura. Nice to be back.Margaret, with fashion it's all about the clothing, even when a lot of skin shows. What's interesting to me is how different these models look, clothed. Clothing really does make the man, and not just because our society requires clothes. ("Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society." Mark Twain)
Funny quote Jean. I'd add that fashion is defined by gay men. When male hetros lead the pack, you get Playboy.
Yes, Liz, but women--largely--are the ones who are doing the buying. Just look at how baby boomers are influencing what's available.
Exactly, women's opinion of themselves is based on a androgynous gay esthetic. They shape our desires and unless you know how to sew, we buy their product.
oh.. I loved it! monumental drawings!have a wonderful three-dimensional representation.
Thank you, Denise!
