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

She looks at you while you look at her...
The last and hurried drawing of our session. But soon she will be back, bringing some clothing like I never expected her to have

Blossoming flower.
She told me she used to be shy and scared to be judged by others. She made a conscious decision to be free and enjoy life by being open and curious, looking for new experiences.
Working together is in that sense liberating for the both of us.

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!

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

In loving memory of a former life model.
She got me into drawing moving models. She moved gracefully. She had that certain something which can not be described. Her body was that of an archetypical woman, if there is such a thing. She was a bit reserved and always friendly. She was creative and came up with the dressing/undressing idea on display here. She made a careerswitch and stopped posing nude. She also cut all ties with artists she had worked with. She made a lasting impression upon me - yet she never posed for me privately.

@dutchnudeartmodel
is an endless source of inspiration, looking very vulnerable and inviting in this pose. And the skirt isn't too youthful in my opinion!

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.

Posing artist
A restless and imaginative person perfectly able to hold poses. This one is inspired by Egon Schiele's art and doesn't exist any more in this form: check my earlier posts and you'll find the finished version, painted/colored with gouache. No sketching, no eraser as you can see I made a mistake in the thigh. Mistakes are part of the experience of lifedrawing.

Symmetric pose
Symmetry is always so tough to draw, even though this one succeeded in that regard it is just like an achievement and I don't like it much. But I remember how she sat like this on the table and she is a very interesting and intelligent person, the only model thus far who, even while posing, challenged me about my motivations.

Sold to a dedicated fan! She will have a new, unique version of my artbook. It now has my artist's statement and two pieces which weren't in the previous version.

Just a pose
A hurried lifedrawing created when model E and I visited my old artist friend for a drawing session. Oil pastel and compressed charcoal on A3+ paper

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.
