Composition

life-8

I think today’s model was a bit shy…. But what an interesting composition! Look how little of the paper “real estate” this model takes up, and yet how much of an impact his figure still makes. I love the unfinished quality of life drawing sketches… There is always an interesting tension between “resolving” a work, and leaving it alone to be resolved in the viewing… With life drawing, the amount of time we have to do the work sometimes determines how “finished” a work will be, and I always enjoy the liveliness¬†of the unfinished work.
