Life Drawing Session

Life Drawing Session

Soft pastels on Mi-Tentes 160gsm pastel – Canson paper.
21 × 29.7cm

Purchase the Original for $AU50.00 excludes postage and handling.

Whilst female subjects present with delicious curves and softness the male can be in comparison quite hard an angular. Here I explore this aspect reducing the subject to planes of shape and form.

    That’s a great piece of work M ! wonderful deconstruction of the figure to a beautiful composition. (are you going to paint it too?……….you should, it would be spectacular as a painting!)

  • That’s an inspiring idea Kafka!

    This is very cool Marilyn. Kafka’s right, you should paint this. Love the compostion and shapes. I find it interesting that the male subject is hard and angular, as you describe, but the pose is quite tender, or perhaps it’s defensive and introverted. Either way, I really like it.
