modern body drawings – draw the line by Olaf Melcher

It was the autumn of the release of Chet Baker’s film „Let’s get lost“. We worked on a rate of two sessions a week with this particular technique I call the „unique trait“. This was my very first release of nude drawings ever. Not one single correction was possible. Either the line is fine or the sheet goes to the bin.
