I think this is my best drawing so far.
There were several challenges in it for me:
1. The drawing has three figures, each with its own pose.
So far I have only been drawing one thing at a time.
2. I had to struggle with the poses to make the graces relate to each other.
Too bad I don’t have live models, it would have helped.
Several times I’d assume this or another pose in order to feel it better.
3. Hands, feet and shading were also tricky without a reference.
I am quite happy with the result, although I found out post-factum that Botticelli was not the only one interested in three graces.There are dozens of different triplets of graces.
I am going to submit this drawing to illustrationfriday.com weekly challenge.
The topic of this week is TENSION. So I’ll name the drawing – The tension of suspension.
