Nude Girl Drawings by a Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, and You can’t make Brownies with Donuts!


Nude Girl Drawings by a Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am still showing my artistic nude drawings and will be for a while.  I am anxious to get back to my other work but I wanted to share these for a while.  I am proud of the craftmanship and expression I achieve in these works.

There are so many mediums to use to make intensely expressive drawings.  Conte crayons are a favorite medium but I think my favorite will always be charcoal.  I especially like the charcoal blocks to get deep blacks and complicated textures. 

Color is the most important part of my work so when I work in black and white or one color I like to have a wide range of values.  Black and white drawings with a wide range of grays are like color to me.

In this drawing, instead of inanimate objects on a table, there is a beautiful model.  I am especially pleased with the use of space in this one.

In Stretch I succeeded in getting a strong sense of volume with a minimum amount of lines and marks.  You really feel the figure stretching out in this drawing!

 I have never been good at sleeping.  I have a hard time settling down and I tend to work so hard during the day that I am often sore when I go to bed.  It usually takes me a long time to get to sleep while my husband drops right off.

I have a lot of very strange dreams.  I think I remember so many of them because I don’t sleep soundly and wake up a lot.

Last night I had one about brownies.  I dreamed that I didn’t have any flour but I did have some sugar coated donuts so I decided to use them!  The dream ended before the taste test so we will never know.  I think I will go make some brownies!

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed my Nude Girl Drawings!

  Here are some more of my Beautiful Nudes.  As I have mentioned before, one of my Beautiful Nudes, “Reaching Out”, was selected out of over 3 million works of art on Fine Art America to be on The Mindy Project.  The show has been renewed for a third season!

In this one the languid pose says it all.  I took care to apply the charcoal and conte crayon in a flowing manner that echoes the mood of the model.

I will never forget what my mother said to me when I was a teenager and had just done something stupid.  She yelled that I lived in a dream world.

Until that moment I had never realized that.  She was right and it is a great place to be!

In this one the hat on a nude model is fun and whimsical!  The bars of the chair make it appear as if the model is purposely hiding and in her own world.  The energetic shadow has a foreboding quality that makes for a great visual accent.

I hope this will be the last of the ant chronicles for this summer.  The troops have slowed down.  They aren’t marching in formation or sitting around the poison drops in a perfect circle.

Now I mostly see them peeking out from behind objects on the counter.  The other day a bunch of them were criss-crossing on one of the counters.  Since they were moving in a random fashion I decided I could put peanut butter on a cracker with out moving to the other side of the kitchen.

As soon as I got the cracker out one of them made a bee line for it!  I yelled, “Do you mind?”  This is my cracker!  Move on!  It did and I finished making the crackers.  The nerve of these ants!

Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you enjoyed my Nude Girl Drawings!
