Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Time and Relative Dimensions in Space

Last two weeks for a while. First some 20 minute poses.



Then these were 10 minutes each.



A 15 minute pose.



It would have been good to have longer with this one as the shadows were really interesting, about 1 hour.



Two 5 minutes and two 10.



About 30 minutes for this.



A forty minute minute pose.



Two 5 minutes and two 10 again.



An all day pose in watercolour. Just under 4 hours.



Sculpture to follow (run out of images).

The sculptures are really sketches as we had different models and poses for 3 weeks. Firstly, one for 2 hours.



Finally a four hour pose.



Thanks for looking. Sorry for not being active in the forum for a while.

Re: Time and Relative Dimensions in Space

The drawings have a real illustrative quality about them, Nathan. Almost like a "how to draw the figure" ... maybe a book/article from you?

Re: Time and Relative Dimensions in Space

Very analytical drawings that dissect the poses. That watercolour of the seated man works rather well with the fireplace frame.

Where would the forum be without a dose of Nathan's drawings, always good to see hard won work. I'm intrigued by the watercolour such a difficult medium at times for the figure I believe you have done well with his face its a nice portrait.

Re: Time and Relative Dimensions in Space

Love your watercolour. I agree with Bill, that it's such a challenging medium to work with...for me that is, what more, for a figure. I don't dare to even try.

Re: Time and Relative Dimensions in Space

These drawings a lovely, Nathan. And your watercolor is great. It has a tinge of Lucian Freud.

Re: Time and Relative Dimensions in Space

Thanks Bethany. Not ready for a book, sometimes it works and others it doesn't. Need to get more consistent particularly with proportions.

Harry thanks. I took a photo of the fireplace to finish the background though I haven't got around to anything yet.

Thanks Bill, as I mentioned in my other thread the watercolours I've been using recently are quite forgiving (fairly opaque and can be lifted without major staining).

Carol thanks.

Constance thanks. I'm lucky that I have a lot of life drawing sessions to attend and can therefore experiment though I'm more risk averse than a lot of the attendees. Just go for it.

Thanks Kate.
