Some practice with charcoal, from a few years back:
Hopefully next weekend I’ll have new posts with new recent work for you.
Meanwhile, another busy week is about to begin.
A few years ago I used to have an artistic phase of nude drawings. Of course I still love nudes, I think one can find beauty and character in every body (literally). In drawing, so-called flaws in our culture, such as fat and wrinkles and hair in strategic places, are what makes the drawing more realistic and interesting.
However, nowadays I’m looking for different challenges, as I feel I got the technique and I want to add more feelings, colors and personal expression.
So this is a partial collection of some of my earlier nude sketches, these are all drawn from models:
