Return to Life (Drawing)


Deborah was a beautiful model at Quimper Arts Life Drawing Session tonight. Drawn with "LithoCoal" which handles like charcoal then heat-sets (and although we know from Ray Bradbury that Fahrenheit 451 is where paper burns, it is still possible to scorch the drawing paper in a 250 oven if you put it too close to the element. Luckily the last drawings of the night came out fine.)

Wonderful. Whether it's my projection or not, your rendering invests this figure with great emotion. Do you feel this as you draw?

What I feel, when I'm lucky, is awe. A kind of peaceful awe. When I'm lucky!
