Recent charcoal drawings/studies







I had occasion to take a life study class. It gave me good practice for short studies. I had not worked a lot in charcoal and it took me a while to find a comfort zone. Unfortunately, the class was not set up for long pose. The most I was able to work on any of them was about 3 hours or so. Not enough time to do a detailed finished portrait, but more of a skill building exercise. These are some of the longer poses. There are many very quick pose drawings that were done in the class that aren't for posting. I plan on taking a long pose drawing class with Dan Thompson this April. Will be working in pencil for that and hopefully have a much more finsihed drawing.
