Silhuettes and Colours – 1

Coal, Cina ink and crayons.

So this time we had a male model. I think it is really difficult to capture the male figure in contrast to the female shape. A real challenge!

  1. I find a female model easier to draw. I love the expression in the crouching figure.

  2. I found contour drawing the best way to get myself to let go of my preconceived figure shapes which tend to lean toward the feminine and to find the actual shape of the masculine figure. Without looking at the page, I would start at a spot and trace the outer outline of the figure as though my charcoal or conte’ was actually touching the figure’s body. An interesting exercise.
