88/366 - Mystic's Theme: Circle Symmetry

2012.03.28
pixel
There is circle symmetry in this photograph. Some quite visible - some imagined. If you read my little story below - it will make more sense.

Lesson Learned: Fashion is a circle - it keeps going around and around eventually getting back to where it started.

Nude Model – 1970

Early morning sculpting

In the corner – in a robe

Stringy haired beauty…

Smoking a cigarette.

“gather round here”

Professor Tom – drunk so early…

Maybe just not sober - yet.

Up she climbed onto the pedestal

My hand clasping the blob of clay.

His hand grabbing her breast…

Our eyes watched as he –(taught)

Talking about form and circles –

Contours and tools…

He - being sure to caress

Points of interest for the class.

Never a wince – never a flinch away

(Is this how it is?)

I was trying to visualize circles –

Two of them - circles…

Me - struggling - trying…

To mold her buttocks

But all I could see were stars…

Not a good first experience –

With a nude model.

atszabo This so reminds me of my first Live Model Drawing Class! I was so clueless when I signed up, but got real suspicious real quickly when the bald guy (our model for the day) arrived and started taking off his socks! Boy, was I embarrassed! But I was struggling so mightily with getting the placements and shapes and size relations right, I was sweating and TOTALLY mentally exhausted by the end of class. And it made no difference whether I was working on his private parts or drawing a vase, I was so lost! Then in later classes I got used to the nakedness, but still found it very hard mental work to get it right in my sketchbook...

gonia he he I was thinking only about one great circle watching this picture - this one on which you sit.
gonia · 2012-03-28: 16:07
NellyBly I can visualize that! :-)) Did you mold anything? The professor had to be a little drunk to "handle" that teaching class..
