Figure drawings in my Moleskine...




Recent pages out of my Moleskine, done during last figure drawing session... 
It felt good to change support and medium, as suddenly watercolor and pencil didn't feel right when the model took her poses in the beginning of the session. I decided to concentrate on composition on these double pages and I'm happy how these turned out. I prefer the double page on the top, where the eye wonders around and discovers things at a second look. 
I didn't work in my Moleskine  since a while. As I got "mad at me and my Moleskine" a while ago. Too many unsatisfying results, not managing to make better, had made me stop bringing it around in my bag. Of course the envy ends coming back, and now I feel it's time to keep it with me again. It appears to be an overall state, I feel happier in general and the envy to work comes as a gift on top of it.

Hola Helen
Siempre lo digo, me encanta cómo superpones las figuras, de forma tan espontánea, veo en otro post que lo has hecho también en las sesiones de figura con acuarela. Ayer ví unos maravillosos dibujos de Schielle en los que también líneas del cuerpo se colocaban sobre otras. Me alegra que disfrutes de una etapa de sólo "disfrutar", un saludo
