Nude Sitting

Today I drew bottles, pitchers and jars for the ellipses, also did some reading in a pretty good perspective book that explains and demonstrates foci and tangents, etc., hoping all this will somehow pass into my brain. I think it so strange that the brain really does lie to you about perspective, and that you must unlearn the old way of seeing. I want to think it doesn't matter about perspective, however when I see work in which it is perfect (Kehoe for instance) I am knocked out. So I suppose there's nothing for it but to learn it, DULL as it is.
Above is one of the 15 minute drawings from this week. I particularly like this model. She is very small and comfortable in her skin. She takes good poses and wears her hair flat to her head so it's easy to see everything. Sometimes models have long hair that is draped all over everything, or 5 inch ear rings they have to be argued out of.

  1. Très joli croquis qui fera peut-être le sujet de l'une de tes prochaines peintures.
