Nude-less Nude Night (NlNN)

Just got back from … (you should know the rest by now) … Life Drawing Evening Class!

And … oh wonder of wonders … the model didn’t show up.
I mean … why go to Nude Classes and have no nude there?
I seriously considered taking my shirt off, but didn’t bother mentioning it.
(Thank the maker! I was embarassing enough tonight, without acting like the narcistic d**khead I obviously am.)

Still – even w/o me baring my chest – we had a very enjoyable evening drawing our mentor … who of course couldn’t come round and watch his fledglings’ attempts at sketching the human figure.

Three students were brave enough to climb the stage and stand their 15 minutes.

I had chosen the following weapons for tonight:

  • Lamy Safari “F” nib with Royal Blue ink
  • Seawhite of Brighton, A5 sketchbook (my “show-off” book)
  • preselection of Polychromos colour pencils (grey, 2 blues, red, magenta, green, flesh, pink)

And then the following pictures appeared one after another … any likeness with real living people is just coincidence.





I had fun and I’m looking forward to this happening again soon … no nudes …

    Stuart, It is so WONDERFUL to see the leaps and bounds that your ability is taking. Your constant practice is paying off big time. Every gesture here is confident, assured, descriptive and convincing. I am actually rather jealous, because i know I am not working this hard.You are making really lovely drawings all the time now xx

    These are really great. I think the clothed figures always show more personality than you get with the nude.

      Thanks, Ros! And may I say, I love your “sketches”! Clothes give us more oportunity to play around … but also to muck things up (-:

    Sketching clothed figures is a more transferrable skill than nudes, in my life anyway!
