Female Nude



I didn't draw  human figures yet . I always said to myself that I can't - but now since I tried it - I think it is quite o.k. and I will practice it more !
I got a drawing book at the fleamarket and in this book there is the reference for my female nude.. in the book she is with her legs and feet- but I didn't get them right and they didn't fit on the page .. ( a beginner mistake I think) --so I painted over them with white gesso. And  I like my first female nude!

Ich habe bis jetzt kaum menschliche Figuren gezeichnet  - immer hab ich mir eingeredet, dass ich das nicht kann, aber jetzt, da ich es probiert hab - denk ich, das ist eigentlich gar nicht ganz so schwierig und ich sollte es einfach mehr üben. Ich hab am Flohmarkt ein Zeichenbuch gefunden und darin ist auch meine Referenz für diesen weiblichen Akt, aber im Buch hat die Hübsche auch Beine und Füße...die hab ich nicht hingekriegt und sie hätten auch gar nicht  mehr ganz auf die Seite gepasst ( sicher ein Anfänger Fehler ) und ich hab die misslungenen Beine und Füße kurzerhand mit Gesso überstrichen. Es gefällt mir eigentlich richtig gut so wie es ist!


I used graphite- and charcoal pencil and white gesso on  brown paper recycling sketch pad.
Ich hab Bleistift , Kohlestift und weisses Gesso auf braunem Recycling Papier Skizzenblock verwendet.

  2. I loved going to life drawing class for many years and drawing from a live model is fantastic... Looking at this you might want to give it a go... I think you would really enjoy it

  9. Hallo Susi,
    Dieser Akt ist dir wirklich ganz toll gelungen, die Schattierungen, die matten Farben,
    es ist alles weich und weiblich. Gefällt mir - weiter so.

  10. Clever artwork Susi. A very relaxed figure. I once painted a reclining, nude figure on a whole bathroom wall and the people who came to view the house, when we were moving out, weren't amused at all. I have never painted one since.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  31. Great job with the figure! You can do anything with practice. :D

  32. Liebe Susi für ein Anfängerstück sieht das schon erstaunlich locker skizziert und sehr gut aus. Besser wird man nur durch üben, üben,üben. ;) Ich muß das freie Skizzieren auch noch mehr üben, aber dafür braucht man Zeit. Wo kann man die kaufen???? ;)
    Schönes Wochenende und weiterhin viel Spaß bei Allem was du machst.
    Liebe Grüße

  33. Great JOB!!!!! I don't do bodies either... My one and only try was a total flop that got torn up before someone saw the alien. I might get up the nerve to try again some day :)

  34. Amazing shading for dimension, and a wonderful rendering of the figure... so inspiring as always, Susi.

  36. Great drawing! The human figure can be very challenging, but it's also a great practice. I took a life drawing class last autumn, it felt a bit weird at first, but I really liked it.
