As I said in my previous post, I am revisiting old studio drawings, working on my use of hatching and value. I am trying to achieve depth and a greater feel of volume. Don't get me wrong, I am deeply enamored of the simple line drawings of Matisse but, I am a bit of a fussy worker liking to push and pull at the media working and working it. It gives me great pleasure to manipulate it.
Nude, Charcoal, 8x10
This is my original drawing, a fifteen minute studio drawing from life.
Nude, Conte on Newsprint, 24x36
Any comments or suggestions, either techniques or practices, would be appreciated. So, have a lovely afternoon.
