I enjoyed this life drawing session. I was happy with most of my sketches which rarely happens. I was trying out a new charcoal pencil, a Kuelox Charcoal pencil – 1803 Soft. I liked it a lot, the only negative is that the pencil is very hard to sharpen without shattering the compressed coal. Rosa, the model is an ex-circus artist who is very strong, her figure is quite short and stocky. She’s a great model and I’ve been drawing her since the very start, but these days I tend to stretch her, I make her taller than she really is in my sketches. I guess it is to suit my ideal female form, it’s my artistic licence, sorry about that Rosa if you ever happen to stumble over this post.
My name is David Meldrum, I love painting watercolours. Another passion I have is life drawing, I run a class called Meldrum Kroki. I was born in Ireland but since 1990 I have lived in Stockholm, Sweden.
