Last night I had a model session with Julia. Sometimes you come across a woman you immediately fall in love with.
Reclining Nude – 19-09-21
This reclining nude is completed two days after the last model session I held at my studio. Being the first drawing I completed after July’s session means last month’s drawing has not been completed yet. This one was relatively easy though.
Model Session – 28-07-21
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.

Model session – 26-09-19
Model sketching time again. My mind was occupied with many other projects but live model sketching always has priority. Whereas skecthing often is called the primary process, live model sketching I consider to be primus inter pares.
Model session – 14-02-19
Last session with my model I wanted to have her pose a little bit more risqué but counterbalance it by keeping the hatched strokes rather rough than to finepolish them into tonal matching strokes that would approach realism too much.
