Live Model I
First Attemp in Live Model Painting-Drawing. Crashed in to a Second Years class and had a first ever go to draw from a live model. Imediate (and distant) environment plays a critical role in any nude/body drawing. Stance is critical in capturing mood; determination, sense of loneliness, feeling of acheivement, certainty and uncertainty. Shadows, are principal in emphasizing the chosen sensation and taking it further, and if not there perhaps they should be created. Failed to recognize codexes though, and isolate body planes and axes. Failed enormously in working abstractly. Abstract work is even harder with the human body than it is with any landscape. Perhaps due to the enormous familiarity with the object.
