Keeping stuff is good #11 Female model

From 2007 #11a
Again, from that sketchbook I recently unearthed and opened. This one is in litho crayon. She wasn’t pregnant. She was an older gal who like some of us was getting a bit saggy. Hate to tell you this but it happens. And it is OK; it is who we are. I know that to some extent, it can’t be helped although it can be mitigated. In any case, I prefer models to be “real” rather than slender and fit. Perhaps parenthetically, I prefer varying landscapes to neat gardens. Like all the other drawings in this series it is drawn on 11 x 14 archival, Aquabee paper.


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.
