Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter The Best of 2013: The Figure Forum

The idea of this thread is to post your best or favourite art works from 2013.

Please limit your post to a maximum of 2 pictures of either paintings, drawings or other art forms. If you have previously posted the image on the figure forum please include a link or details of the previous post (the moderators will try to link the image to the original thread if we can).

Please include details of the medium, the size and also the reason why you are choosing this image which will be interesting for other members.

The thread is for images only. For discussions or comments please use the "Go Figure" thread currently here.

Many thanks for your participation and l wish everyone a creative 2014.

Thanks Nathan!
My best drawing from life - 15 minutes- pastel on cartridge - A1
- because I got the pose and the light across the form in the 15 minutes.



My best painting from life- Oil on canvas 50cm x 35cm 2hours 15mins
- because it is the best I can do right now!

Gestures because it’s Scratch Chicken at it’s best.


Because it looks like Bob.

Both of these I've chosen for the composition or structure of the picture.

Firstly an acrylic 22"x18". From the 9th November. Thread is here. 3 hours from life and then 1.5 hours adjusting mostly the background and softening edges.




Second a pencil drawing on A2. From the 19th November. Thread is here. Nearly two hours from life.
