Life Drawing
Male portrait in blue and yellow “The fascination with the human body extends to my life drawing. For many years, it has been a major element and continuous passion in my work. Normally, faces are of no importance in life drawing, as you focus mainly on posture, positive and negative shapes, three-dimensionality and accuracy of proportions. It is brilliant drawing practice! When I make drawings of the nude, I am most interested in expression – of the body, the face, feet and hands. Features of the models are often exaggerated to show what fascinates me most about them at that moment. Because poses are usually short, I work fast and vigorously. My lines show the energy with which they are drawn – they have a kind of male quality.” Male portrait in red and green Female with big hand Female torso with latex gloves
