Figure drawing & other marks made on paper

These last couple of weeks have been challenging so finding the time for drawing was not only difficult but absolutely necessary.

I did a couple of figure drawings but both my camera and scanner are too inadequate to capture some of the large gesture drawings that I did. Oh well. I did manage to photograph the long study I did. The photo is of the full figure and the detail image is a scan of the drawing.

Scan of the full figure study - I need a bigger scanner to capture some of the larger drawings I make.

Quick charcoal sketch of Siwa. We had a rough night last night: Siwas mouth bled for almost 30 minutes until a lemon-sized part of her tumor dislodged. It was nasty but she feels better today. She ate all her food & had a full tail wag on our short little walk.

    I just love your full figure study. It’ great! You captured the attitude with the minimum of sketching lines to make it precise and lively; beautiful shading too.

    Beautiful figure drawing. So much emotion in your drawings, and I really hope that Siwa will get better soon 🙁 I’ll pray for that.

    Poor Siwa! Love the drawing though – very tender. And the two figure drawings on top are so well done!
