Reclining nude, inclining artists.

Here are all the usual elements of an observational drawing made in our studio in Rijswijk. (Nude, chalk pastel, 50 x 70, 2007) The model adopts a traditional pose that can be held for an hour. The artists appear reflected in the looking glass behind her, as do elements of her own reflection. The colours are mainly primary colours and the light is from all directions. Business as usual. Sometimes I feel like exploding a bomb in there... or setting off fireworks, lighting a fire, unleashing the fire extinguisher, uncaging a lion... we all need change. Tomorrow a big, black, male model - that will help.
