Entry for March 24, 2009

Another late arrival at Artists 25. E- was working this time. I had time to do these 4 poses, all in the 15 to 20-minute range.
I have to admit that the study of E- with her shoe was, in actuality, quite distorted perspectivally. It was like an anamorphosis, with the top of the drawing really small & the bottom part way too big. Reversing the perspective effect in photoshop makes this a quite well-proportioned study. I was standing looking down at my drawing pad, rather than my usual lazy-man sitting, and wonder if the changed angle of sight on my drawing led me to wrongly 'perspective-compensate' what was being set down on the paper.

That or I was just getting bigger as I kept drawing.
