Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Five images, seven nudes

It has been a long time since I have posted, and I have missed all of you! I have been drawing, however. To get restarted, I thought I would post a few recent drawings. Except for the fourth image, all are 20-minute poses.

1.


2 Unfortunately, this one is on newsprint.


3.


4. These were one minute gestures, but I added the background at home later.


5.


C&C welcome!

Kate

Re: Five images, seven nudes

All of these have solid shapes- that last one is sculpture-like.
Great to see you back, Kate!

Re: Five images, seven nudes

These are very good. Varied approaches to the figure. I keep coming back to the two seated models and the sheet of three poses. The first sitting one is perhaps the most striking.

Thanks, Reiver. Lively is good.

It's nice to be back, Bethany.

Thanks, Harry. Sometimes simple lines speak loudest.

Re: Five images, seven nudes

Welcome back Kate. I like the sculptural effect of the last one and the next to last one reminds me of Matisse's dancing figures.

Nice studies Kate does this mean you have regular life classes now?

Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Re: Five images, seven nudes--Updated

Bill, I can go to an open studio with a live model during fall and spring semesters. Summers are spotty, and there is nothing during class breaks. It's not bad, though. I can draw from life most of the year.

I used one of my drawings as the basis for a print. It is a hard ground etching with aquatint. I'm not sure it is very successful. I would have preferred the areas of aquatint to be lighter. I'm just learning to make prints, and I learned a lot from doing this one.



Of course, with prints, changes can be made. If you have suggestions, I would gladly consider them.

Kate

I like the print Kate it's a good remaking of your drawing, you have managed to transform an ordinary drawing into art I have no suggestions, keep doing what are doing and you will be the one to help others.

Re: Five images, seven nudes

Thanks, Bill. I'm kind of addicted to printmaking. Since most of my drawings are figures, I'm sure I'll do more.

Re: Five images, seven nudes

I hope that you do more Kate. The aquatint version is very successful; you've elegantly captured the figures but with an economy of means. That's hard to get right, most etchers I know overdo it on technique.

Cheers;
Chris
