TheGreatNude presented Sketch Sessions to the public at the Contemporary Art Fair NYC, held at the Jacob Javits Center, Oct. 19, 20 and 21, 2012. Liliana, a well-known Life-Model here in New York City’s figurative arts schools was one of the model posing for us that weekend. This video gives an overview to the fair and the figurative artists exhibiting there.
In the early days of TheGreatNude’s publication, we began producing “Sketch Sessions” featuring models and guest artists at our studio in Hell’s Kitchen. Guest artists would offer tips for drawing the nude. We produced everything inside a 8′ x 15′ space.
I found this model online and was struck not only by her lean, muscular body, but also by her sense of self, as reflected in the confident, athletic poses she presents to us. Here’s ten images that are sure to inspire a Great Nude from one of you artists!
