Charcoal Figure Drawing Art
Ciao! Oggi it rains, so I have decided to set up a safer photoshoot in my room here on the same street that the house of Michelangelo is on in Firenze, so that I may get a final image of my charcoal drawing of Sara. So, here she is – 66 x 46 cm and the title is “A World Away.” Most models are familiar with this idea of where their minds travel while they are not moving during the pose.
Sara’s birthday is the 5th and I have come to understand that I do not always meet deadlines for myself, but if I set them based on what I would like to do for other people, the deadline takes on more significance for me and are met. When the rain stops and I have time, I will spray her with fixative and then take my charcoal drawing to the frame shop for a cornice. She will be more protected in this way and ready for her new life in someone else’s space.
I hope you enjoy “A World Away” and my little blog discussions during her creation about my choices on the disegno. Grazie!
