There is nothing in all the world more beautiful or significant of the laws of the universe than the nude human body. In fact it is not only among the artists but amongst all people that a greater appreciation and respect for the human body should develop. When we respect the nude we will no longer have any shame about it.
— The Art Spirit, Robert Henri
A live model opportunity where we had to paint very quickly, in 10 minute passes. For the first 10 minutes with pencil, then 10 minutes for the first wash. Then move on to a new pose, 10 minutes for pencil, then 10 minutes for the first wash. Alternating between two paintings, we finally managed to quickly draw this live model.
Modèle vivant peint très vite. Première étape en crayon pour 10 minutes, ensuite un autre 10 minutes pour mettre le premier lavis. Alterner pour une autre pose pour un autre 10 minutes en crayon, et 10 minutes premier lavis…. ainsi de suite.
