Hand on Knee


Finally back to work in art class! Two weeks ago we only did a series of 5-15 minute sketches and no time for a full drawing or painting. Last week I missed class for personal reasons. But finally this week I got to work with the model's long pose. The paper I usually work with in class is 12x16. I can't do the entire body on a sheet that small. Everything would have to be too small, and therefore too finicky for my tastes.
As a result I have to choose a crop of which part of the model to draw. It's always fun to make that choice, as well as the color choices.

This one gets to me. It's as if not seeing her face makes me have a stronger feeling of the woman.
