My Sketchy Life – no mo nude

Clothed!  The model was clothed!  I actually found it easier sketching nude people with no distractions . . . like folds of fabric and print patterns and color.  

The model had on an elaborate costume with intricate patterns and gold threads. I tried to eliminate all the “distractions”.  Here’s my first attempts at using water-color pencil.

Jokingly, I asked the model if she would take her clothes off.  She replied, “Will you?”    tumblr_mdzmtrd5du1qargfho1_500

  1. So – did you?

    You have to understand the human body – muscle and bone – in order to accurately depict a clothed figure. You did well with these drawings. Love the hints of color in the first sketch as they emphasize the figure.
