"S" Acting Out





“S” Acting Out
He is so good at acting out a story in each pose. I know I should be doing more here than just showing the sketches.
These are a few more sketches from the drop in life drawing session I attended yesterday.
The multiple sketches on one page were each fifteen minute poses he provided in a progression. If I had known before hand what each of the poses would be, I might have placed them differently, and maybe varied the scale. I might use them as a reference for a composition that makes more of whatever story is hiding here.
In the ink sketch I had time to add an environment. I still haven’t quite decided what he is doing in it though.
1st: 24”x 18” graphite and sanguine on paper
2nd: 9”x 12” ballpoint pen on toned grey paper

  2. His talent comes through because of your talent in sketching his moves, Anthony. I especially enjoyed your ink sketch...

  3. In the top left-hand pose I see him throwing a spear...in the centre, it has just left his hand...in the right pose, he has turned to see who is following.

    In the lower pose, I see him in a gondola, effortlessly propelling it along the waterways of Venice! Methinks my imagination has taken flight today!! LOL:D

    1. I see your story for him coming through for the top drawing. And for him with a pole in the bottom: I wish I had thought of that too.. Him in a boat would have worked so much better.
      Thank you
