We had a new male model at Basis this Saturday. His name was Fritz and he was extremely good, he reminded me of Egon Schiele which isn’t a bad thing as I have him as one of my heroes. I am curious to know where he learned to pose as he did, he must have learned his trade abroad, that’s my guess at any rate.
It was the usual frenetic pace at Basis; 1,2 and 3 poses mostly. I think we had one 5 minute pose. A crazy amount of paper gets used but I really feel I am developing a lot during these turbo sessions. All sketches were on A3 paper and I used a charcoal pencil plus charcoal dust applied with my finger.
