Nude Drawings in Charcoal and Ink by a Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, and It Hurts, too!


Nude Girl Drawings by a Blue Ridge Artist

I still have a lot of beautiful nude drawings to share here.  When I was in school I loved using different mediums to draw the model.  Each medium has a unique expression and it is always fun to explore all the ways it can be used.  There is no end to the different ways charcoal, ink, conte crayon, etc. can be used to enhance the drawing and make it something to be looked at for it’s own sake.   

Although I like all styles of art, I have never understood the fascination with photo-realism, or, as some artists call it, hyper-realism.  When an aritst seeks to copy what photographs capture I wonder that they don’t just make photography their medium.  I have no problem copying a photograph or painting in a hyper-real style but I only do that if it is a commission.  My work is about my reaction to what I see and how to put myself into it.

This is one of my favorite charcoal drawings.  The rich blacks and soft textures are especially intriguing in this work.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband and I come from a time period when not many people tattooed their body.  Now it is rare to see people without tattoos.  I love what one person said on Facebook in response to the fact he had no tattoos.  He asked if the person had ever seen bumper stickers on a Ferrari.   Don’t get me wrong.  I am not against them, they just aren’t for me.

We were discussing this on a walk and my husband was a little ahead of me.  I think many people will not like the way the tattoo looks as they age.  He replied that they can be taken off.  I said and it hurts, too!  He laughed because he had just said it was a painful procedure.  I didn’t hear him say that. Well, it does hurt!!!!!

 

Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you enjoyed my Nude Girl Drawings!

    • Thank you! It is frustrating to hear people go ga ga over a photo real painting when I am perfectly capable of doing the same thing but don’t want to. I think many people believe that artists that don’t work that way are not capable of it which is rarely the case.
