Summer Threads and a Nude

I’m staying at my mother’s house at the moment and I found one of my old sketchbooks from 2009.

It’s always interesting looking through what you’ve done. Seeing any threads that you weren’t consciously aware of but that later developed more fully.

One thread that I don’t really paint is the nude. Here’s a female nude I did at a life drawing meet. I must get back into it.

Leonie’s life drawing meets in Melbourne and is one of the best if you happen to be in Melbourne and love drawing live from the model.
