Naked Ambition

I love reading Fia Blue’s tales from the other side of the easel. She has a lovely style.

    Interesting observations from a “newbie” model. I have attended many life drawing classes and have been a model myself in my trimmer but poorer days. Can’t imagine one so large though. There is nothing as absorbing as life drawing – however neutral the model tries to be there still exists a profound human connection between artist and model. As Fia puts it so truthfully the socially accepted norm of the ‘perfect’ body vanishes in the studio. Participating artists, however they think in day to day life, are only concerned with the formal elements of the body and how best to render them. Perhaps this is why the Nudist movement exists – despite the sly humour and cynicism cast upon them they may be onto something…
