This is the first session of a full body portrait
This a detailed progression of Large Nude. I wanted to share some thoughts and strategies leading to the finished product of my first ambitious drawing. There will be more nudes to come!
This piece was in a previous post called White Series. I wanted to create tense movement by collaborating white nail tips and clear hair beads.
This is the outcome of an earlier post called Nude Series 1 investigating the history of the black female nude. I’m satisfied with this although it’s not complete. I joined together 3 pieces of sanded colored paper to create the size. I’ll post dimensions of the drawing soon.
These pieces are experimental. I hope to translate them to three-dimensional, free standing statues in the future. We’ll see what happens!
