Figurative Drawings



Natasha, 1997
Rome, Italy
Aquarelle on rag
After all the blather about black & white and dry media, here is one in colour, although monochromatic, using a combination wet and dry medium, watercolour pencil. One of my favourite drawings.

Muriel, leaning forward, 1996
Rome, Italy 
Pencil on Carta da Spolvere
Muriel was a clown and a contortionist, one of the best models I've ever drawn from, and completely crazy. We loved drawing her.

Woman from the back, 2008
Paris, Ontario, 
Pen & Ink
This was one of a series of drawings commissioned by interior designer Susan Burns for one of her clients. I started working from old gesture drawings. What I found interesting in this process was discovering why some original gesture drawings worked for this purpose and others were inadequate: it was the amount of information that was there... or not. I was continually berating myself why I hadn't noticed while I doing the original drawing that something was missing or not delineated sufficiently. Yes, I could make it up, but doing so often weakened the new drawing.

Back of Model, Sitting on the Floor, 1993
Montreal, Quebec
Charcoal on Paper
I wish I could remember the name of this model. She was fantastic. She announced at that session that it was to be her last modelling gig, that she had bitten the bullet and had gotten a "real" job working as a postie. Another one of my favourite drawings.
