Charcoal and pastel/paper drawings of nude male and female models in a variety of poses.
A group of figurative drawings on paper, each inspired by a live model posing for varied amounts of time (1 minute, 2 min., 5min., 10min., 20min., 30min., 1 hr.) in 20 minute segments during three hours. I work with a group of artists. We share the cost of the model. We warm up with the short poses and work up to the longer ones. I use various media—charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and water soluble crayons. My method is to “feel” the figure with my hand moving the medium over the paper to transfer that experience to the page. It is a fun, sensual and emotional act!
