Keeping stuff is good #19 and #20

Collage 19 - 20

Again, from that sketchbook I recently unearthed and opened. There are a whole series of nudes in this sketchbook so I am posting two or three at a time as collages. I got into the habit of drawing nudes from life from studying at the Art Students League in New York City. It is a good habit. Good models make good poses and good poses generate ideas about drawing them. Right now, there is an exhibit at the League called “On The Front Lines,” by artists who either taught or studied at the League and who are also WWII vets (June 19 to July 29). Two of them, Terry Coyle and Peter Golfinopolous, taught me much. Like all the other drawings in this series, these two are 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.
