Life drawing

I am enjoying my return to figure painting. I have been using charcoal for ages but not anymore, at least until I crave a change, … which happens quite often. The poses here are 2-5 minutes long, the drawing has to be quick as you can imagine. I paint as much as I can, no time to be fussy -that is why it’s so much fun!

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.
