I have been working on this 18x24 piece from a life drawing session I did about a month ago, It is still in the works.
It has been worked from the original sketch, layers upon layers upon layers...
I could have easily start over fresh since I had a photograph I took to capture the moment and to have a reference, but the sketch from that night had all the feelings, Vulnerability and power this beautiful young woman was experiencing while posing in tears. 👇🏼from previous post.
the Last night was a very strong different life drawing session, The most powerful experience I've had wile drawing.
There was no time clock, No change of pose, Just beauty in a way I'd never before experienced it.
All we did was one long pose.
But so much more was going on, It was a therapy session at the same time for my model who was feeling down and very vulnerable.
She used her headset and meditated while sitting still,
She cried a good portion of the time. I was warned it could happen but was not prepared when it actually happened.
She sat there as tears rolled down her cheeks into her chest, I kept drawing her beauty and tried to capture the expression, Pain and emotions she felt.
It was not easy to sit there and not comfort someone crying, especially a woman But I also knew this was part of why she came over. This was a therapy session for her and it ended up being one for me also.
I wanted to capture most of her features while sitting there in front of me, i knew I could not finish the drawing or detail it the way I wanted but it was important for me to capture some very key parts during this time, I will continue to work on this piece and give it the ending it deserves in the coming days.
