Transsexual model

This was a first for me, I’d never sketched a transsexual model before. It was a challenge, part female – part male. I’m happy for the model, that she was proud and wanted to pose in front of strangers. It was a difficult session.

Tuesday’s life drawing

Rosa again. I struggled to find form, to be inspired. That’s the way it goes.

Monday’s life drawing

A young tall gymnast with cyclist thighs. He had some interesting poses, like when he stood on his head for two minutes and held perfectly still.

Saturday’s life drawing

a life drawing by david meldrum

The model’s name is Rosa, I’ve been drawing her since I began life drawing which was back in 2011. I know all her poses, her curves and every muscle on her stocky frame because I have sketched her countless times. She used to be a circus performer I have heard, she is 60 years old –  she is young for her age.

Tuesday’s life drawing

I seem to be back in the swing of thing when it comes to my life drawing. I’m keeping it simple at the moment, I use a 2mm 3b and 3mm 6b mechanical pencil. No watercolouring and no charcoal to distract me from catching the pose.

Trying hard to clear a backlog of work that needs to be published. Trouble is, I need to paint too.
