This quick sketch of a muse paging through a book is a little offering to the Arts to help me keep focus as I direct myself toward a stronger understanding of the human form.
Drawn from a Hellenic torso in the Nelson Atkins art museum in Kansas City, MO.
If you look at the dates it becomes apparent that structural practice with the figure is an ongoing concern. The Hellenic torso is from way back in 2008 when I first bought the gray pens and thought I'd try them out.
Making an initial drawing with shades of gray, then following up with colored pens; reading along with Drawing From The Masters by Robert Beverly Hale.
