Life drawings from December 12

I love drawing full figured models and this week we had one of my favorites. There must be some reason that Rubens and so many other great painters preferred well rounded women. I have drawn this model many times and it’s always a challenge to get the sense of volume and the gesture together on the page. Here are this week’s results.

    1. Thanks very much for writing and especially for following. I looked at your blog and really enjoyed seeing your figure drawings. There is a wonderful quality of line and the drawings are very expressive.
