Wednesday--(Hipbone Studio)

The model at Hipbone ("L") could well be my favorite. She gets into graceful poses and stays perfectly still. She also throws off an intriguing melancholy vibe. I decided to go with some toned paper for a change of pace.

Drawings: Celeste Bergin, Model L I, II and III, charcoal and white pastel on toned papers

Lovely sketches. I like the toned paper, too.

Il n'est pas toujours simple d'esquisser un personnage frêle sans que celui-ci fasse mal à regarder. Très souvent les formes, même les plus généreuses et qui pourraient nous gêner dans la vie de tous les jours, sont belles... Sous le crayon elles rebondissent agréablement.
Dans vos dessins, votre personnage filiforme ne donne pas cette impression de fragilité maladive qu'ont les maigres, mais au contraire je ressens une extrême délicatesse. Vos lignes sont graciles.
Gros bisous

It is not always easy to sketch a character without frail that it hurts to watch. Often the forms, even the most generous and that we could interfere in the life of every day, are beautiful ... Under the pen they bounce nicely.
In your drawings, your character does not filiform this impression of fragility sickly What scarce, but instead I feel a great delicacy. Your lines are graceful.
big kisses


Thanks Martine!

Great work, Celeste. I like toned paper. These are all great

You never seem to stop, Celeste :0) What with your show coming up this weekend.

But if you're tiring, it doesn't show in these elegant sketches. If I did these I would add so much detail that she would look like an old woman ...less is more?

What fabulous pieces, each and every one. Love the directional lines in the top piece too. Oh to have a thimbleful of talent!

I'm with Martine. The drawings are wonderfully spooky. You want to take this lady out for some Italian food.

Skelectal people were very difficult to draw as I recall. In figure drawing, we mostly did figures with volume. You did a great job--definitely reminiscent of Picasso's blue period. The gray paper and white highlights add drama to the girls emaciated condition.
