Model Session – 28-07-21

At the Binckhorst

Together with a student I had a lovely model session at the Binckhorst in The Hague. She invited me to come to her studio because she had a friend who wanted to sit for us. Actually the same sofa was used as for the previous model session. That one resulted in a great graphite pencil drawing ‘Woman in a Red Kimono – 02-07-21’. It is a lush space and plenty of room, more than in my tiny studio. I must admit I am a little bit jealous. On the other hand, being a former office building it is empty and the toilets do not work anymore. These empty buildings are subject to copper thieves and junkies searching for a place to sleep though. Consequently, the short time lease artists often are faced with will be terminated any time soon now. Therefor, this session was held probably just in time.

 

Pastel

I had brought my Conda pastel box I use for live model session like these. Pastels for some reason are perfect to render thick plains of tones and hues. This way I can focus on the composition more and in particular body proportions. In general I like to take a considerate amount of time to get them right. After all, why make corrections all the time later on?. Even though I was satisfied with pastel drawing I added some details in her face and hair back home. I could only execute them with pastel pencils. My sticks simply were too big and the sheet too little. Anyway, a lovely model session and I thank my student Liesbeth for hosting the scene. Last but not least I thank her friend who, in spit of not being a professional model, was perfect. She sat still, had great musculature and posture.
