I am going to show a number of black and white nude drawings that I decided to re-do in color.  I am pleased with both versions.  In this case, I like the color version better.  The shadow in this drawing makes it for me.  The dramatic spacing and light are greatly enhanced by the elongated shadow.

The model’s pose is exuberance itself, hence the title.  We should all celebrate!  All anyone really has is a limited amount of time and each day is precious!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband and I are sometimes baffled by computers.  I have used the Add Media button and added Youtubes before and the whole Youtube comes up on my post.  Now I just get the link.  Yesterday I had Clyde try to figure it out and gave up.  Maybe I will get it to work again sometime.

Meanwhile, here is my latest Youtube on my Kendall Expressions!  Please click on it!

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!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 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!
