Sunday Drawing March 27 2011

This week I continued to pay attention to the unity of values and how they bring the form together as a single, coherent element. This is most evident in the first image (the five minute pose). I then became involved in a different focus. I suddenly realized that when I came to understand what I was seeing, I didn’t have to focus much attention on what I was doing. Instead of paying close attention to the lines and marks that I was making, I looked and thought about what I was seeing – the model and her proportions, the gradations of value and the planes. I also attempted to remember that the model was a person, and as Nicolaides suggested, I imagined what it would feel like to hold the pose she was in. With that awareness, the very fast and spontaneous marks that I made, seemed to really describe the model!
