The participants will receive a reference photo of Mariya to print and to use as reference during the drawing session.
We will be drawing this elegant, sinuous pose, inspired by the many depictions of Venus in Art, including the Venus Pudica and the Birth of Venus, using charcoal and chalk on toned paper, paying particular attention to the effects of the light on the forms of the body, practice measuring the figure accurately and render it tonally.
