Study of female nude
30 minute study of female nude, Conte on Ingres paper, 11" X 14", by Hilary J. England
I found an artist's group that actually does figure drawing online. Go figure! Now, the model comes to you, for free, wherever you want!! It's a novel concept, and although I prefer working from a live model, this was interesting, and is at least something I can do when I can't make it to a group session down in Bethlehem.
I was able to jump into this session for the last 1/2 of a 3 hour session. I love that they have sessions this long, and that you can photo the pose to continue afterwards. It's been very hard to find a group outside of going to Manhattan that will have those long, single pose sessions. I'm looking forward to be able to do some more involved figure drawing with this group. It will be interesting to see how it goes with translating it from seeing the pose on my TV, rather than in person. I mean, I have a 60 inch TV, so when she poses, it's about the same ratio as when a live model poses in front of me, distance wise.
