walnut ink on toned paper 9x12
Every Tuesday and Thursday here in New York at the Society of Illustrators there are two models and a three piece live band. It gets crowded and, since there is bar (it's in the dining room of the Society), it has a speakeasy quality without the smoke. $15 and anyone can come. Many good artists are there doing anything but your standard academic nude drawing.
This piece was done with a fountain pen loaded with Walnut ink made from the shells of walnuts, an old type of ink. It's water soluble, so, when I go over it with a water filled brush, I can get a wash.
I should mention that I drew this from a chair placed on a table so the artists are actually below me while the model is on the same level. This explain, in part, the perspective.
