… and the last words of wisdom written on the Vancouver Gallery walls:
…What poet, sitting down to paint the pleasure caused by the sight of a beautiful woman, would venture to separate her from her costume?
— Charles Baudelaire
GPP: Remember, the woman comes first; the costume comes after. For a time you may strip the woman of her costume while you learn to draw the body.
Enjoy drawing the beautiful woman even if your model is not so beautiful and relish her costume.
Have a wonderful semester!
First the body..
…then the costume!
