Special muse A wearing my jacket.
I bought it many years ago while visiting Rome, this wonderful leather jacket model "Napoleon".
If only the artist who made it could see it on her...

I'm not done yet
This perspective is so inspiring to me, it could very well be something I'll return to again and again, in different styles and media.
I was almost completely under the table, lying on my back, looking up at her. The life drawing I posted earlier, this is scratching and more scratching in photoshop. So grateful for her willing to work with me!

Joy
After we met, we worked as tutor and model during an in company training at an advertising agency. Those employees needed training in sketching and visualising, life drawing is one of the best ways to develop those skills.
She was an ideal model for that purpose, with classical proportions.
She had that certain "je ne sais qoui" so I asked but she did not want to pose for individual artists. Sad to say she also let me down by not showing when I organized a group session.
Today I came across an old sketch of her which I finished in this way in oilpastel 50x50cm.

Scratching her back.
The sketch of her back, made last tuesday, that is!
No touching models, in exceptional cases to adjust hair or clothing - and only with permission.

She had the idea to pose "in the air" and she had done a poledancing course so I ended up renting a poledance studio for an outside the box group life drawing session for (find it on fb) schetserij. Pole, aerial yoga and aerial hoop is what she played with, it was a unique & memorable evening!
Soon to be repeated with a master poledancer, I hope!

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

Come, as thou cam'st a thousand times,
A messenger from radiant climes,
And smile on thy new world, and be
As kind to others as to me!

Or, as thou never cam'st in sooth,
Come now, and let me dream it truth,
And part my hair, and kiss my brow,
And say, My love why sufferest thou?

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

Muse & painting.
Just a fun idea! The oilpainting is still waiting to be finished.

MOST RECENT

An other one from the duo session.
They are both very accomplished in their (different) line of work and part of the conversation had to do with that, very interesting.
They are not professional models, but friends wanting to experience how it is to pose in the nude and be drawn by an artist. We loved it and decided we will do this again!

Stretching.
Today I was visited by this muscular and lean bodied dancer/performer whom I've had the pleasure to work with more often.
Inspired by a photo in the feed of one of my followers on Instagram.

You can BUY my art, just DM
Beautiful woman posing for a very old man, a mature woman and a middle aged guy.
It was a nice gathering for all involved.

It's up to her!
She decides when to change her pose. So I have to draw like crazy, not knowing how much time I have...

Few things are as beautiful to witness.

Friends
She made the suggestion to pose with a friend of hers. Last tuesday we finally made this a reality - it was very special, beautiful and intimate.

A bow to you. Have you recently started following me? Thank you, I appreciate it very much...In my art I try to express my admiration for/my fascination with the entire female body and spirit. As a result a few of my works can be viewed as so called explicit. Are there any parts of a body that offend you, or which you would rather not see? Please avoid my art and unfollow me now, my next post will be a drawing featuring a revealing pose.
Peace be with you!

Former model...
Muse, artist, dancer, inspirator, art therapist, sympathetic person...only posing for groups, she stopped modeling a couple of years ago, that is how it goes, I hope not with a few models I have really bonded with. Let's get old together and create art until we drop

It is a privilege getting to know awesome people like her thanks to creating my art. Read her blog, she described how it is, working with me as a model.
Here she supported her head in a peculiar way. Pencil on A3 paper

It is about...
form through light & shadow, beauty and meaning is in the eye of the beholder...
And the privilege to work together like this, creating souvenirs...

Sketch a poledancer!
For my dutch followers, I'm organizing a lifedrawing session with this amazing poledancer june 25th!
Als je mee wil doen meld je dan aan op facebook (schetserij) of stuur me een DM

Crate for my oilpainting
which has been selected to be judged for real by the jury of Figurativas 17.
I've made this (hopefully) sturdy wooden crate to house my "Blue crawler" painting during transport to Barcelona (and back again) for the figurative art competition of https://www.meam.es/es/announcements/4/figurativas-2017.html

A bit different

This is E.
I'm looking forward to an other session with my new old artist friend and his model/artist and lovely E. Also she and I have reserved two days to work outside if the weather permits. She very much likes to get a tan while posing!

Drawing in the old artist's studio.
My new old friend, the 91 year old artist, still enjoys life drawing although his eyesight is less than 15%. I introduced the lovely E to him and now we regularly meet to draw her. Present during this session was a model of his for over 40 years, an artist herself. In all those years working together as artist and muse many life events passed: she got married, had children, divorced...and has grandchildren now.
I would like to follow that example with all women willing to work with me, as I get attached a bit, but would be happy if it would be realized with a few.
These are just some fast linedrawings created during that session

Crazy
Inspiring dancer/model drawn/painted very fast during one of the hilarious sessions from #hollandsnextmodeltekenen with projections, commentary and clashing music.
This was the first time I met her, we worked together from that moment on, several pieces in my feed are depictions of her.

Three minutes or so.
All I had time for.
Then she changed her pose, like we agreed. Each position a race against the clock, until she decides to do something else.
That will teach me efficiency...perhaps

Moving inspiration.
Freely moving about @dutchnudeartmodel more raw & free by far than many professional dancers I've worked with. She never did this before. This is a lesson, also for me: all that you learned you have to unlearn to be authentic

A nude back.

I was almost completely under the table, lying on my back, looking up at her. The life drawing I posted earlier, this is scratching and more scratching in photoshop. So grateful for her willing to work with me!

Asleep
Not really, but it is the position in which she likes to sleep. To have the dress raised like this was my idea actually...seminude is often perceived as more ohlala than nude...

La Española
A very lively and creative person who modeled for life drawing for a few years. She could also move in a fascinating way and she was beautiful to watch and draw.
I get attached to some models and years on I still miss her as a muse.

Censored nude, she sent me this photo, happy with the drawing she commissioned! This was created with combined photos of her and I asked a model of mine to imitate her pose so I could check. It is a solution when life drawing is not possible

Her portrait
Can't think of anything to write other than: I like (working with) her.

Just a pose

The muse and the old artist
I had arranged for this very special model and my very old friend of 91 years old to work together. He invited me to join so I witnessed this special meeting.
He used to be a well known scientist who, in retirement, dedicated much of his time to life drawing and painting female models. Now, at this very old age, his vision only 15%, he still enjoys these moments. He sees just a blur. But he knows she is beautiful, maybe picks up some of her aura and he hears her warm voice.
It was a memorable sight: one of my favorite muses, vulnerable and gorgeous, and my old artist friend, one foot in the grave. My model friend being a muse for an almost blind man and, just by being there, enriching his life.
He is also lucky to still have his wife (married for 60 years) who, like my girlfriend for me, knows this makes him happy and supports his art.
Old age, decay, youth, beauty, life.
Does she realize the energizing effect she has on him (and on me)?
I recognize much of myself in this man. I hope his vision doesn't deteriorate further.

Yesterday
A very special drawing session in the studio of a friend, 91 years old. With a very special model. Next post will be about that.
Compressed charcoal and pastel on paper, 70x50cm
Also yesterday I hit 10.000 followers, Instagram seemed stuck: new followers were not added. This morning the counter dropped, so the fiesta was premature...Instagram is acting strange.

Still love this old brush drawing.
From back in the day, when I participated in group life drawing sessions on a weekly basis. So model after model after model...I have no idea who she is or was.

Realizing
I had an experience with her which made me realize that I don't like life drawing in a group setting much any more.
In the morning we worked together privately. We like to talk during her posing/my sketching and in that way, at least in my impression, sometimes the drawing shows something extra, some connection occurring at that moment.
We had lunch and we went to the studio where she would pose again, this time a group setting.
There is no talking with a model during such a setting, it would be distracting to other participants. As an artist you can not work up close. You can not suggest/give pointers for poses: there would be no end to the differing suggestions artists would make.
So there she was, like an object to be studied. I participated and organized such regular life drawing sessions for many years, but there is not much in it for me any more.
By the way she is super, posed for some of my most popular posts, we will work again with an extra model (which I am very much looking forward to) and you can read her blog: thelifemodelwholookedback.wordpress.com

Anywhere but here
That is what she seems to think, but who really knows...can you ever know somebody, even yourself? Maybe it is for the better...

Looking up while lying on my back on the floor. Couldn't get it right but, with a reference photo, this could be painting material, haven't decided yet.

Light from below
Often a bit creepy effect. The likeness didn't exactly succeed but I like the feeling, especially because this was the first, warming up, pose of our little session today...I'm glad you are (back)!

Bruised knee
A friendly librarian and very nice model from long ago. In those days I was coordinating life drawing sessions, week in week out for three years. One day she told me she thought I'd better do something else - she was right. I quit and didn't do life drawing for a few years, it had become a chore to me, which she noticed

Undressing
One minute maximum.
Almost the classical continuous line approach, a way of drawing which is popular during tutored life drawing sessions.

My feet
Are so far away
From my head.
I think that they are
The most fortunate
Piece of my body.
Rarely are they
Punctured
Or stabbed.
Clawed
Or sliced.
They even try
To hold me up
When I'm too dizzy,
Depleted to think.
To bad I hate them,
For they are still
A part of me.

Bodydetail while she was on the table. I'm counting down until we will finally work together again: @dutchnudeartmodel and me, it is always a joy and easy.

Undressing
To explore life drawing in a setting where nudity is normal I asked both my models to take a shower during the secluded weekend drawing immersion last year. My book about it, packed with drawings of this special experience, is only 17,50 euros ex shipping - just DM...
