weekly figure group

Carbon pencil on Strathmore drawing 180 gsm, 14" x 10".

a weary week, and off to the wednesday night figure group.

the model was anna marie, who was much more focused than usual. she did a number of good standing poses, but my focus throughout was on her face; i did six or eight portrait heads before i left early.

i liked this pose for the challenge of the tilted and foreshortened head.

we are having all the bedrooms and offices in our house repainted, and the fumes have driven me down to the studio to sleep.
