Natsumi I

Life drawing

Drawn from live online life drawing session with LiveArtOnline and finished from reference images, June 2020.

Natsumi is a tremendously athletic model, able to hold almost impossibly graceful poses for great lengths of time. I’ve often struggled a little when sketching Natsumi in person because I tend to get intimidated by these wonderfully balletic angles that I’m not sure my clumsy hands can interpret properly. Even here, with the benefit of being able to draw from reference videos at my own pace, I don’t think I was light enough to entirely do these justice, but I was inspired by the coiled energy followed by the energetic release, the tension held within the limbs even when seated.

Available as a pair.
