figure drawing #58

I really like doing stale kind of standing poses but they are rare because we feel bad asking the model to stand for 2 hours. This model was game though.

2 hours charcoal on 18"x24" drawing paper.

note- I've updated the photograph of my painting below, its a little more representative of the real thing.

darn it, do you have to do a life drawing right after i come home from (a pathetically wasted) one?

do you have any of your drawings/sketches available at higher resolution so that it would make a decent print at say A4 size? or do you only sell those? i would love to use some of them as a drawing tutorial.

funny how none of the stiffness got through even tho the poor girl had to keep still for 2 hrs...
