Live Model :: Modèle vivant

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.

Paper: Bockingford 140 lbs CP
Colours: Rose Madder, Cerulean Blue and Aureolin Yellow

  1. Hello Jane, I found your blog through Marc’s and enjoy getting your posts. I paint in oils but for the last year or so have had an itch to do watercolour journalling. I just bought some Bockingford paper because I’d seen Brian Ryder using it in his sketchbook so I’ll be interested to see how it works.
    Thanks
    Tracey

      Hi Tracey,
      nice to hear from you! I do not know Brian Ryder so I will look him up… thank you for mentioning him. For the Bockingford paper, I think that the medium “paper” becomes a very personal experience… some watercolourists love a certain type of paper, when others not… it is just a personal experience and that is good! Thank you for commenting -)

      Oh my! I have just gone to see what Bryan Ryder does and it just shows you that I do not know what I am talking about!
