Life Model watercolour sketches
Last Tuesday we had an exquisite model, she was a dancer and radiated pure grace as she sat for us. The model's energy can make such a difference in the results of the drawings. I particularly loved all the beautiful red, silk cloth that she provided. Returning to work with the model is pure joy for me, for three hours my head empties completely, I think of nothing and become fully present in the moment. The time just flies by, I am always surprised when the 3 hours are finished. Drawing from the model reminds me of the similarities between the human form and the landscape. I want to explore this more. I am particularly enamored with the female form at the moment.
