PascalePosted: June 15, 2018
Pascale was one of the best models to draw this session. Not only were her warm-up poses exceptional, but on breaks from the long pose, her vivacious personality lit up the room. I think that makes a difference when you are drawing someone, don’t you? I find I do a better drawing if I understand something about the personality of the model. This was the last session before I take a break for the summer, and it was a great way to end the season.
I drew last night with black and white chalk, on Stillman & Birn Nova Series grey paper. It was the ideal paper to use for someone with dark toned skin, although I didn’t know who our model would be when I packed my supplies. At the end of the evening, Pascale did a tour of the room to look at the drawings, and her comment about mine was that I rendered her tattoo very well. Can you tell what it is?
