Keeping Stuff Is Good #3

From 2007 #03

This is another of a series of drawings that I recently unearthed when I opened a sketchbook that was sitting on a shelf. There were originally 60 drawings but some were sold. They are all 11 x 14 on 93 pound Aquabee paper. This one is done in litho crayon and colored crayon. By the way, it was done from life. The female model posed nude. She had her hair pulled back. I don’t recall her age, probably in her late 30s or early 40s. I do recall that she was a good model. Could hold a pose and was otherwise quite professional and helpful. The composition was designed to conform to the “golden section’ notion of good design.


About mmgilbert

I have been drawing and painting all my life. Now part of the “New Symbolist” movement which encompasses both Goth, fantasy and tattoo art as well as the century-old work of Odilon Redon, I focus on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials. I studied with Edward Millman, a WPA muralist; at Purchase College; and at the Art Students League in New York.
