An Otto Dix inspired life drawing session

Last week I attended a life drawing session with a super-expressive model @emilymetakskin who was channeling the work of Otto Dix. Sometimes all I know about an artist is based on one piece. A session like this one makes me research the painter some more, and I often find that it’s the little drawings and studies that I like the best.

During a session, I put things down on the floor as I move on to the next pose and at the end there’s a collection pieces by my feet…


Here are some of my favorites from that session.

Pencil, pen, sumi ink, watersoluble crayon and liquid watercolor

I started this piece by drawing in pencil and ink over a red background.

And I ended up here.

Pastel and ink over a pre-painted acrylic background
