1st entry for February 17, 2009

L- was working at Artists 25. These were two 10-minute poses she took. The sitting pose was the first study of the night for me, and you can see a lot of loose, searching gestural lines, and some awkward proportions, as I was feeling my way into my drawing headspace. When that headspace clicks in, much of that is not necessary. When it comes to searching out forms I'm not sure of setting down, the example given in Nicoloaides' book of Honore Daumier - who builds up images from very light sketchy marks - has resonated with me from a long time back up til now.
