I am sorry, but this one got posted a while back and some of you are new so I thought I would introduce you to Geri.
This ball of dynomite is up for anything and giggles all through the session.
I have some drawings I loved and they got sort of lost in the shuffle that I wanted to post and she popped up.
Ok, for those that want nudes....

Hubby says, now THAT's a real woman :) :) :)
And I have to agree, love it :)

I am laughing looking at the number of people who LOOKED at this but didn't post!
Sort of fun in a sneaky sort of way to see what the headlines for our works get us!
Thanks for looking gang, even if you love to lurk!

(((dj))) I like this one too! The woman is confident...your painting is confident.....................and honest. The beauty of human anatomy. A record here of time...and the work of time..on the human figure. (we all get to be "other" people during our lives....as well as we can be them).
And you say dj..that Geri.."giggles" during the sessions. More power to her.

Great brushwork Dj! You are as amazing as ever with this one. Keep up the great work. I'm envious of your handling of the shadows! :D
Excellent!!!!! It's good to see a painting of a woman that has actual shape. I've walked out of many a figure drawing class because the only models that were offered lacked any real curvaceous volume. Larger women are much more interesting to draw and to look at. Bravo for posting it.

Very nice. I might call her

I'm sure Rembrandt would have approved. So refreshing to see a painting of a real woman, not someone who weighs 22 pounds!! Very "painterly!"

Wonderful! I like volume too. And real people and I find the neat and tidy, thin bodies visually a little boring. Check out the golfer tan on this one:

That looks a bit more like a sunburn...I think. Any chance of a better scan? Nice picture...Hope you posted it in your own thread and get aquainted with us!

Sorry about the quality, that's the best I can do with my crummy little digital camera. The image is 24x48 and has a lot of problems, aside from some anatomy that I just couldn't get right; i.e: the feet and the legs....after 12 years of marriage, you'd think I could paint them with my eyes closed. Additionally I painted it over another painting and I am having weird bleeding problems from the old painting. No big deal, I'll just have to try and catch him again, asleep, because he won't sit for me awake.

hihihii funny lady...I like your painting...I like broad brush stroaks

I couldn't see the beard and hair until you used the pronoun HE.
With a little guidance I like it even more!
Very intimate. I can see the moment of peace as he naps in the sun early while you get ready to work, he glows of play!
More and more!

Thanks DJ. Your work and words inspire me.

Hi, dj... Hi all!
I'm a new member, just signed in a couple of days ago and I have a great time checking out the forums :-)
This is so cool... reminds me of the movie Titanic :D
I wonder if I could get my grandma to pose for me like this, be good as a gift to her on her 84th b-day :-)
:clap: :clap: I like it very much.

Hi dj, thought I would check out the figure drawing forum and what did I find? Geri.. :p You did a wonderful job.
06-27-2001, 01:44 PM
Djstar, this woman is someone to meet!
I love that impishness you've captured with her.
It's hard, sometimes, to comment on what you see because you want to say something that contributes to the conversation.
The discussion can become so deep sometimes like the one about how men paint women and how women paint women that it becomes difficult to sort out your feelings enough to contribute something meaningful.
I can't believe how much time I spend thinking about what each of you has to say! It is refreshing to be with so many people who stimulate thought!!!!
Thank you all :clap: :clap: :clap:

It simply works. I enjoy the steady uncompromising smile.
03-16-2005, 06:26 AM
Gosh! Wish I could actually find the image, then I would know what everyone was talking about
03-16-2005, 06:43 AM
Id love to see them...but theres nothing there. Did you/cant you attach?
The link copy and pasted in url takes me no where either...
They sound lovely....

Dana has fixed it you should be able to see the pic now, this thread was started about 4 years ago lol
03-17-2005, 02:13 AM
Ahhh! Thats better. Not so shocking though. Not to my mind. I like
03-17-2005, 10:04 AM
This is my favorite "view" all day. I love this model! Also your style compliments her. She is so solid and assured. Not at all self conscious and your painting style says the same things! This painting made my day! :clap:
03-17-2005, 12:46 PM
What a great model! And your treatment is refreshingly honest. This sort of strengthens my point about real people vs. corporate and tv notions of beauty that set off some arguments in this thread:
03-17-2005, 07:55 PM
this is very cool! It reminds me of a sunbather I saw in the South of France once and a little like me!Do so more. Sincerely Peg

How is this shocking? Shockingly good, I reckon!! I know you did it to get attention...and well deserved! Great brushstrokes...Great attitude...great character. Try harder next time...to shock us that is... ;)
