This is a charcoal drawing of a male model in motion on A1 sized paper. Life drawing – drawing nude models from life is the foundation of all good art practice. It teaches the artist to see, to observe, to perceive the subject in a way that is unique to the model and unique to the artist. The artist in her work then selects from the model what goes in as well as what she leaves out of the work. Image making is also active. Life models are God’s gift to the training artist.
