It looked TOTALLY innocent from my angle!
Our figure drawing group was so lucky last night to have a married couple pose for our group. After a few 5-10 minute warm-up gestures, we began working from a long pose.
As I helped the models set up the pose with pillows and padding, I was going for a "c" shape or zig-zag pattern...the male lounging towards our right, the female lounging towards the left. Everything looked great and then the models settled into their pose.
You can see from my drawing it was a great set-up - a lot interesting shapes, light and shadow, and I liked that she was looking up at him, her chin gently resting on his leg.
Of course, as you moved around the room, the pose took on an entirely different appearance...one that was definitly not intentional! The couple was so funny, they laughed when they saw the drawings. We have another male and female model scheduled in a few weeks...let's keep it clean, people!
