    Here's a quick glimpse of a piece I've just completed and will enter into an RBSA prize exhibition next month. I took the photo with the work in its frame which is why it's crap.

    This is a male anatomical study and life drawing guide, which I'm hoping will be useful to art tutors and anyone interested in figure drawing from life. It's based on my own figure so I've pixelated the rude bits as I don't want anyone to spit out their drink.

    and no doubt enlarge them a little.
    Is this right, have you drawn this Gary?
    Amazing attention to detail, superb work.

    Yes I drawed it. It's done in watercolour pencil and graphite. Finished piece is 490 x 390 mm to give you an idea of scale.

    That's excellent. How do you make it accurate to your body?

    Cheers. Well unless I peel my skin off and/or have loads of x-rays done, it had to be based on estimations, my knowlege of anatomy, lots of prodding to see where bones start and finish and photos I took of myself. You can't see on that photo but there's quite a bit of rubbing out and re-drawing because I got a lot of it wrong initially. My main problem was all the reference material you find on human anatomy has figures (usually male) in the classic anatomical pose, which is palms facing forward. That means with the arms you get definite anterior, posterior and lateral views. I made the mistake of having my arms relaxed by my sides so the views are a cross between all three views, which caused me no end of headaches with determining where all the muscles and tendons go. Even now I'm not sure I've labeled some parts correctly.

    Oh they are still there, just resting behind some 'relaxed muscle'.

    Lol.

    How long did this project take you Gary. I know most of your work is mega detailed, and time consuming, but to my eyes this is in a different league.

    I'm now working on the Forth Rail Bridge at night painting, courtesy of Paul's stunning photo as the source/inspiration. It's being done in acrylic and won't be an exact copy of the photo as what's the point in that?

    PS. Oh the anatomical study drawing wasn't accepted but I was half expecting that would be the case. I'm not bothered, there has to be a first rejection at some point.

    Should have this finished by Wednesday. Just putting in the myriad of reflections in the water from the lights.

    A pic will appear here when it's finished, which should be Wed afternoon/eve. I'm fairly happy with how it's gone except for putting too much black on it, which of course cannot be undone.

    OK I lied, it's nowhere near finished and I haven't had chance to work on it since the other day. Maybe by next week.

    Cheers Paul, it's an awesome photo you took. I think it was last December? I have to get it framed now and may enter it an exhibition coming up shortly so it's NFS just for now. Also, one of the places I work at is having a big 'anticurate' event in which members of the public can submit work free of charge. Normally the costs involved in getting more than one piece hung are prohibitive - framing - submission fee - hanging fee, transportation, etc.
