3rd entry for May 12, 2009

These were all 20-minute poses. I was impressed by how C- was able to 'double-cross' her legs while sitting. But more than that, trying to set down her expression was the big concern in drawing her. It wasn't bang-on, but I came close.

In that regard, though these are full-figure drawings, I still see them as portraits. On one hand, the sitters being undressed can be seen as better showing their 'true', unadorned selves. But alternately, it is an even more artificial way to encounter someone than when they are clothed.
